This Wednesday, volunteers are getting together at Women for Obama house parties across the country.
There's something special in store for all of us: a message from First Lady Michelle Obama.
As the honorary chair of Women for Obama, the First Lady's going to deliver a message just for us about the progress we're making together and the work ahead in the months to come. We're hoping for a great turnout to show just how many of us are out here working hard to get Women for Obama off the ground.
Are you free on Wednesday night? Here’s what you need to know.
You might remember that the very first bill President Obama signed into law was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act—a major step forward for women's equality. Thanks to the historic health reform he championed, women now will have access to a wide range of preventive health services, including contraception, mammograms, and well-woman visits, all without a co-pay. And insurance companies will be unable to get away with the discriminatory policy of charging women a higher premium than men.
That's a lot of progress—but we're getting to work now to make sure we get four more years to build on these milestones.
How do we do that? Well, it starts with people making the simple decision to get involved in your community.
The Women for Obama house parties on Wednesday are the perfect chance to do just that—and hearing from the First Lady is sure to get us fired up.
Don't miss what she has to say. I hope you'll join us—and be sure to invite all the women you know.
