In response to anti-women legislation in the General Assembly, a new political action committee was launched just days ago. The Women’s Strike Force, a bipartisan effort, is raising money to recruit and support candidates who challenge those legislators who supported the legislation.
The group was mentioned on the Rachel Maddow show on the day it was launched.Vodpod videos no longer available.
With the mention, the group raised money from 40 states, an impressive feat for a new organization.
Women’s rights are neither Republican nor Democratic. Neither are they solely within the realm of just women. So I urge everyone who believes in the rights of women to support this effort. The group’s Facebook page can be found here and the twitter feed here. You can sign up for more information here and, of course, donate.
