The Working Momifesto - The DNC & You

August 25, 2008

Reporting on the DNC, see Veronica Arreola's blog, excepted here:
Today marks the start of the Democratic National Convention and with it four days of speeches, promises, and pageantry all designed to get us to vote for the Obama-Biden ticket. But what does this ticket offer for working women? Are we even on their radar? A peek at the campaign website offers multiple policy stances in these areas: * Health care * Reproductive choice * Preventing violence against women * Economic issues * National security * Poverty * Education   There is even an economic plan for women on the campaign site. It’s not that long or full of jargon. I think it’s fairly simple to read and think everyone should take time to read it.
