Women's issues require women. - Update http://www.dccc.org/page/m/1d63cf95/1b4d698b/32a7191c/4e0ce701/2441916033/VEsC/ This is what I said what will you say? : ( 2/26/2012 )
End discrimination in the halls of power. The Government needs to respect Women's rights and their ability to contribute. Women's issues require women's involvement - no ifs ands or buts
My comment submitted today 2/22/2012: Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Cantor, and House Administration Committee Chairman Dan Lungren must immediately reverse their decision to deny Sandra Fluke the right to have her testimony televised. Do not deny the public their right to attend. Do not deny Americas right to be involved. This will help keep the spin Dr.s silent. Clean up politics be clear and transparent to the people of the USA.
What would you like to say ?
2/22/2012 Update action request: Action Update on Women's Rights: http://www.dccc.org/page/m/1d63cf86/1b4d698b/321211c6/4e0ce730/4092750375/VEsH/
Last week, the nation was appalled that Republicans held a hearing on women’s access to birth control coverage that included a panel with five men and no women.
Now, they’ve gone a step further.
In a last-minute move, House Republicans have apparently changed their own rules to deny televised testimony from Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student that Republicans refused to let testify last week.
Will you immediately sign our petition calling on Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Cantor, and House Administration Committee Chairman Dan Lungren to reverse their disgraceful decision to deny Sandra the right to have her testimony televised?
It is unacceptable that Republicans would once again deny women the right to publicly testify about women’s health care. It is up to all of us to speak out against this shameful censorship.
Act quickly: the hearing is set for tomorrow morning. Add your name >>
We almost couldn’t believe it. Today, at a House Oversight Committee hearing, House Republicans convened a panel on denying access to birth control converge with five men and no women. As my colleague Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney asked, where are the women?
Join me in our call to Speaker Boehner, Eric Cantor, Chairman Issa and all House Republicans to demand that women be brought to the table when discussing women’s health issues. Help us gather 50,000 signatures before Congress heads home tomorrow.
Sign the petition >>
Thank you for standing up for what’s right and joining our fight.
Best, Nancy Pelosi
