It is coming down to the wire and you voice needs to be heard! Republican Speaker John Boehner, Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, and Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid are making their choices to select a 12-person bipartisan “Super Committee” to decide upon critical issues that came to the forefront when the debt-ceiling measure was passed.
The Women’s Media Center has a place where you can sign a letter to each of these lawmakers raising your voice that it is critical they appoint an equal number of women and men to this powerful body. Click HERE to send your letters now.
It is imperative that women are at the table and that women’s voices are heard in equal numbers to men’s voices. The “Super Committee” will be tasked with making critical judgments that will likely affect social programs that women disproportionately depend on – like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. The positions, priorities, and perspectives of women need to be heard.” The Women’s Media Center
