Republicans have been on the rhetorical offensive against women for too long. Will Mothers Day be a time to stand up for their rights?

According to the most recent data available, there are more women in the USA than men, so why is it that they lack equal representation in government, private industry, and academia, and their earnings are still not the same as those of men. Will the scales of equal justice for all under the law ever be balanced?

It is Tuesday morning, do you know how to immediately reach your Representative in Congress and your two US Senators?

Senators meet every Tuesday for a weekly caucus luncheon, where they discuss and set their legislative priorities. It’s imperative that they hear from all Americans about the need for structural democracy reform legislation before they go into these important meetings.
