Women’s Equality Day, marking the anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote, is this Friday. The long and continuing fight for women’s rights has produced real gains – but women still have a long way to go, and many of the key laws that have improved women’s health and economic security are under attack.
So we’re celebrating Women’s Equality Day by joining with many of our sister organizations in HERvotes, a coordinated effort to mobilize women to counter the threats to women’s Health and Economic Rights (HER rights). We hope you’ll join us! You can see a list of the top 10 laws for women that are currently in jeopardy, check out our other blog posts, and what bloggers in other organizations are saying in a multi-organizational blog carnival. Also, make sure you’re signed up to get email alerts to stay in the loop about issues you care about! We’re counting on you to help us reach out and make sure women’s voices are heard.
This blog is part of the #HERvotes blog carnival.
