Saturday Vids: My AAUW Voting Pep Talk
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) recently asked me to contribute to their “Our Voice. Our Vote” campaign. Here are my thoughts on why I’ll be voting in November (and why you should be, too!)!

The Importance of Voting
I am now officially a member of the National Organization for Women (NOW)! NOW is the largest feminist organization in the country, and has been a huge presence in women’s rights advocacy ever since its creation by Betty Friedan in 1966.
While I had a relationship with NOW before I joined, I felt like I really belonged when I recently attended the National Organization for Women (NOW) webinar titled “AAUW Voter Outreach Campaign Strategy Session.” The webinar was co-run by NOW and AAUW (the American Association of University Women), and hosted by NOW President Terry O’Neill and AAUW State Grassroots Advocacy Manager Kimberly Fountain. It was all about how to get women at the polls in the upcoming 2012 election. You can read my full notes here.
