It’s been almost 100 years since women were given the right to vote and still American women are disproportionately underrepresented in our government. The 113th Congress has 99 female members, making up just 18.5% of the seats. Only four women have ever been appointed as Supreme Court Justices. Finally, when it comes to the most powerful position in America, no woman has ever been nominated as the presidential candidate for either major political party. Given the stagnation of women’s advancement in politics, it’s no surprise that women’s issues remain marginalized.
Attention college students, women, those unemployed, those uninsured, minimum wage earners, environmentalists, teachers, families of the middle class, families of the lower class, and any others who are fed up with the North Carolina GOP: midterm voting is happening this November, and you are needed.
