From the AAUW Action Network:
One important strategy for making progress and protecting hard-fought gains on issues important to women is to increase womenâ€™s turnout at the polls. As more women get involved in the electoral process, womenâ€™s influence in politics will increase and politicians will be forced to respond to the interests of women voters.
AAUW has released a new resource, Woman-to-Woman Voter Turnout: A Manual for Community-Based Campaigns to Mobilize Women to Vote, to provide assistance and encouragement to advocates so that together we can make a positive impact on the turnout of women voters. Making progress on equity for women and girls doesnâ€™t just require pressuring Congress on legislation. We must also turn out women on Election Day to hold those same legislators accountable.
