We know that women’s voices have been relatively quiet in the media’s discussion of the election. We’re busy with our families, our jobs (or looking for jobs), and trying to find some time for ourselves.
But if our points of view aren’t heard, decisions will be made without us.
NC Women Matter is starting a campaign to help women write letters to the editors of the newspapers across the state. Watch for more information (either on our Facebook page, our e-newsletter, or by subscribing to updates to this site – see lower right).
Remember: It is best for the letter to the editor to include something new to add to the conversation and a bit of personal experience pertaining to the article. You don’t have to be an expert or advocate — just a concerned citizen.
And if you see an article or editorial that’s crying out for a response, do post here to help us maintain the momentum of this campaign.
