WomenCount PAC


July 3, 2008


Dear Friends,

What does the Fourth of July mean to you? Freedom, equality, rebellion? Just like our founding fathers and mothers, we refuse to allow our issues to be taken lightly and we will not be ignored. Like you, WomenCount is fired up and ready to act, but first we need to hear from you.

WomenCount is an organization that has grown out of the historic presidential primary season – we are of the people and by the people – and your opinion is critical to our success. Think "MoveOn" for women. And now, we need your insight and direction on what issue we should tackle first.

It's up to you. Is fighting sexism and gender bias at the top of your list? Do we need to change the discriminatory nominating process? Should we turn our attention to electing more women to office? Tell us what you think at womencountpac.com

It may seem like just one more decision to add to your list this weekend in addition to what fireworks show, barbecue, or parade to attend. But this decision can change the world – for our mothers, our sisters, our sons and daughters.

The primary season proved that there is still a lot of work left to do. So as you prepare to celebrate our nation's Independence Day, we urgently need you to make your own declaration.

WomenCount has already received incredible feedback from thousands of people who have became energized and inspired during the presidential primary. Add your voice to the growing chorus at womencountpac.com and then tell your friends to do the same.

Happy Fourth of July!

So far in the 2008 election cycle, WomenCount has run a series of ads related to the presidential campaign and made contributions to several women candidates for Congress.
