Send me a message on Facebook or OrgSync when you finalize your schedule, so I can reserve our meeting space for a time when as many women as possible can attend!
The first of the 3 Presidential Debates took place last Wednesday, October 3rd.
This debate was focused on domestic issues, and largely highlighted taxes in particular.
Obama continued to claim that Romney's plan will increase the deficit, and Romney held his ground and dispelled Obama's false statements.
The Vice Presidential Debate will take place on October 11th, and the next Presidential Debate will be on October 16th.
Did you have a chance to watch the debate? What are your feelings on Romney's and Obama's performances?
Today's Rasmussen Poll
Women in the Media
What are your thoughts on the way that women are portrayed in the media?
Young women are bombarded with sexual messages from a very early age.
This objectification of women affects young girls' self esteem and idea of what being a woman means.
"We are teaching young women that their worth lies in their youth, their beauty and their sexuality; not in their capacity to lead.”
Though some gender stereotyping is normal and even good for society, there are very few ads featuring men doing housework.
Furthermore, this stereotyping is begun at a very early age; girls are given play houses to cook and clean in, whereas boys are not.
The idea "we girls can do anything" is applied to home-making, rather than career or personal goals.
Gender Stereo-Typing
Do you think that little girls should have toys that could be considered "gender stereo-typed?"
Romney is in Cuyahoga Falls TONIGHT!

Our meeting will end by 6:00 so we can get to the event on time :)
Romney - 48%
Obama - 48%
Other - 1%
Undecided - 3%

Forty-five percent (45%) of voters are “certain” they will vote for Romney and not change their minds. Forty-one percent (41%) are certain they will vote for Obama.

Today’s results will show Romney slightly ahead in the 11 key swing states. This is a significant change. For virtually the entire campaign, Obama has done better in the swing states than in the national averages. It remains to be seen whether this is a lasting change in the race or merely a temporary aberration.
