Virginia Gov: "working women and feminists detrimental to the family."

The National Organization for Women
The elections held Tuesday should open all of our eyes.
Please meet the new Governor of Virginia:
[The] " dynamic new trend of working women and feminists ... is ultimately detrimental to the family."
You read that right -- the new Governor of Virginia thinks working women are "detrimental" to the family.
If you're scared that it might get worse in 2010 -- and you should be -- well, I have a way you can help fight these right-wing extremists who'd like to take over our government.
NOW is committed to making sure women's voices are heard on the campaign trail and in the halls of Congress. We're already gearing up to hit the streets and educate voters, urge candidates to address issues that affect women's daily lives and get voters to the polls.
And we can't do it without your help now. We must begin planning and budgeting early so no one else who thinks women's rights are a "detriment" makes it to the top.
Will you contribute to NOW's 2010 voter outreach and education effort?
NOW's strength has always been our network of grassroots activists throughout the country. With your help, we will equip them with the tools they need to reach out to voters, helping them see through lies spread on the campaign trail with factual information about the candidates and dangerous ballot initiatives targeting same sex marriage and reproductive health rights.
Please contribute today. We can't do it without your support.
For justice and equality,
Terry O'Neill
NOW President
