“Out of the 16 seats that we must contest in Ohio, seven on the Democratic side have women running for Congress. Seven out of sixteen. That’s almost half. Now guess how many the Republicans have. Zero. Please help all of our seven sisters win our respective races. We can do it, we can do it!”
~ Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur speaking at the 2012 Ohio Democratic Party State Convention
Click on the links to the websites for our seven sisters. Follow the links to their social media. Like them on FB and write supportive statements on their posts. Follow them on Twitter and retweet them. Give them small donations because those small donations add up and show the media that the candidates have broad support. They also keep the spirits up for these courageous women as they fight to represent our interests in Congress. Find out if one of them is in your district, or is in a race you think is especially crucial and volunteer. Tell other people you know about the Seven Sisters of Ohio.
We are the deciding factor in this election. We determine the direction of our nation. This is our moment to pull the legislature back into the modern era and leave the extremist Republican War on Women in the dust. We can do it!
