Received this e-mail today from State Senator Vincent Sheheen's (D. SC) gubernatorial campaign:
I just had to share: a recently released survey ranked South Carolina one of the WORST states for working moms. In fact, we were ranked 5th worst in the country.

With Mother’s Day this weekend, the moms of South Carolina deserve better! They deserve a state where they can work, raise a family, and find affordable childcare. Under the Nikki Haley administration, women are still making less than men and we’ve seen cuts to vital programs our families rely on.

My friend Vincent Sheheen, however, has spoken about the need for equal pay for equal work. He has worked to help women create their own businesses by removing barriers to entrepreneurs, and he is fighting to strengthen laws to prevent domestic violence.

If you agree that we need a governor who will do better for our working moms, add your name to this petition before Mother’s Day >>

It’s time for new leadership in South Carolina. All moms, their families, and friends, deserve a leader who will make this state a place where working women are able to succeed, not a place where the deck is stacked against them and we once again have a harder time than anywhere else in the country.

We can do better and we must. It’s time for new leadership. We deserve it. If you agree, make sure to add your name to our online petition.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
