UniteWomen.org partners with Women’s March on Washington

UniteWomen.org is proud to announce our partnership with the Women’s March on Washington and it's sister marches around the country. In April of 2012, women across the country came together to organize Unite Against The War on Women, with 55 rallies in 45 states. This was a grassroots effort to stand against the plethora of laws introduced across the country eroding the rights of women and the...


UniteWomen.org ACTION endorses Hillary Clinton and Democrats

UniteWomen.org ACTION was established in February of 2012 to combat the Republican attacks on women’s rights on the federal and state levels. Our continued effort has highlighted the efforts by Republicans to not only diminish our rights but to block any progress toward equality. We have also highlighted the efforts by President Obama and Democrats to push for progressive values and further our ...


Open Letter to President Barack Obama and the U.S. Senate

UniteWomen.org ACTION stands with the pro-choice, civil rights and LGBTQ communities against the nomination of Michael Boggs to the Federal District Court of Georgia. President Obama and the majority of Senators in the U.S. Senate have proven themselves to be ardent supporters of the rights of women, minorities and LGBTQ community. But our laws are not written by legislation alone. Equality is...


Good-Bye GOP

Last Presidential election it was about making history. I cried that night because finally America cast aside its prejudice and racism and voted for a man, not based on his skin color, but on who he was as a man. I was so proud, so grateful that in my lifetime I saw the struggles of my parent’s generation fighting for civil rights and equality come to fruition. On Nov. 6th I know there will...


One Woman’s Demand

Women have not been treated as full citizens of these United States from the inception of this country, and our Declaration of Independence and Constitution through the amendment process, did not remedy these deficiencies, our lives have been restricted unduly because of false information and invalid ideas which depicted women as inferior human beings in mind and body incapable of self determi...


Silence No More

The first thing an abusive man teaches “his” woman is to be silent. I am sitting here wondering if I dare make this analogy.  I do not wish to make light of those women who find themselves trapped in the reality of abuse so please do not make the assumption that I am not aware.  I have seen the harm that a man can do to a woman or a child and somehow justify it in his demented diseased mi...


Soldiers Needed for the War on Rape

  The problem of rape still plagues the United States. Why? Because rape mainly affects women: 9 out of 10 reported rape victims in the United States are female.[1] Under the leadership of a predominantly male government, rape receives little attention (the House is comprised of 362 men and 76 women; the Senate 17 women and 83 men).[2] As an example of the general disinterest our governm...


Hold Politicians Responsible for Their Rhetoric

    I’ve always been judgmental about how people handle national tragedies.  I’ve taken people off of my Facebook friends list for joking at all about the Aurora shooting, the Indiana State Fair tragedy where people were killed by the collapsing stage, and anything involving the war.  I don’t think it is right to take advantage of the deaths of many for your own personal ga...


Women and Future of American Democracy

We’ve all heard about the war against women. What hasn’t gotten the same amount of press is that the war goes beyond reproductive health to an attack on women’s most basic civil rights. Ninety-two years ago, the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution granted American women the right to vote in national and local elections. The amendment is beautiful in its brevity and clarity: ...


A Southern Lady’s Rant

UniteWomen.org-Vagina-Rant-GOP-War-on-Women-Unite-Against-the-War-on-Women-Silencing-Women

Gentility, decorum and just plain old good manners are the mark of a proper southern woman.  We pride ourselves on our hospitality and adherence to the social graces. That is, until some scurrilous individual takes advantage of our inherent good nature.  Then all Hell breaks loose and I am here to tell you all Hell is breaking loose all over this country. It seems they have taken our polit...
