Dear friends, family and colleagues,
I am writing this today about the election to urge you to vote and to take the time to encourage other women to do the same.
This election, more than any other in the past, allows women to show why our voices and ideas should be heard. We comprise over 50% of the population, our constituency can tip many of the races that are dominating the country.
Our issues are not only about equal pay, women's health and access to medical services, protection of women's rights, but also the economy, the budget and how it affects social services, and foreign affairs.
As women who are invested in our community, please pass this note along to your networks and show that women are a formidable voting block.
I will be proudly be casting my vote for Barack Obama. I believe that he is invested in protecting women's rights today and in the future.
