Isn’t it about time that you, as a woman in this country, start looking at voting in a new light? Why should voting be any less cooler than any other activity that you do? Especially when your vote, along with the votes of the millions of women in the country who constitute 49% of the voting bloc has the potential to create a government that is more attentive to the female population.

You and your group of girlfriends; or you and your mother along with many other moms and daughters; or you and all the women in your office – all of you are part of the power of 49.

As a collective, women can actually achieve something when you all vote as a bloc. It’s time to wake up and take an interest in the government and the policies that could really affect every day change in your life and in the lives of all the women you know.
