Women DO Count!

For those of you who have been following the election and all the questions and debates over how to attract women voters, the following article may be of interest:

It really breaks down the myths surrounding the female vote (for example, women vote down gender lines instead of party lines) and shows ways in which these myths have both influenced the current campaign and been detrimental to it.

Perhaps one of the most empowering parts of this article is the following quote from Debbie Walsh, director of the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University:

“It has the potential to have women determining the outcome of the election.”
I don’t know about anyone else, but that definitely made me feel like my vote was important.
