Unbelievable Attack on Women - 167 Years After Seneca Falls!
In 1848 on July 19th and July 20th, the first women’s rights convention took place in Seneca Falls, NY.
The convention advertised itself as "a convention to discuss the social, civil, and religious condition and rights of woman” spanning over two days while attracting widespread attention, it was soon followed by other women's rights conventions.
The meeting had six sessions, included a lecture on law, a humorous presentation, and multiple discussions about the role of women in society. The organizers presented two prepared documents, the Declaration of Sentiments and an accompanying list of resolutions. Exactly 100 of the nearly 300 attendees signed the document.
A heated debate took place at the convention regarding women's right to vote, with many urging the removal of this concept, but the suffrage resolution was retained.
The convention's Declaration of Sentiments became the single most important factor in spreading news of the women's rights movement around the country.
Now, 167 years later, at a time in history when we should be expanding rights for working women —my extremist tea party opponent Rep. Curt Clawson is trying to take women’s rights backwards by co-sponsoring H.R. 2802 The First Amendment Defense Act.
This REPULSIVE ACT is a disgusting act of terrorism against working women that would make it legal for single mothers to be fired by their employers, simply for being single mothers.
Women make up of more than 53% of this district and we need to make our voices be heard.
I need to get the word out right now but my opponent has more money in the bank than I do, so I need your help today.
Please contribute what you can. Whether it’s $5 or $5,000 - every dollar counts so we make a real difference in 2016. You can be sure, I will be the voice of the people, because I do care and I will fight for you because #WomenMatter!
Thanks for doing what you can!
