What You Can Do About the Women's Vote

There's been much speculation about the women's vote and how the so-called "war on women" will impact the 2012 election, but to be sure there are plenty of votes to count, a new campaign has been launched to motivate American women to make sure their voices are heard this November.

Concerned Women for America (CWA) CEO and President Penny Nance announced this week the launch of "She Votes 2012," a million-dollar nationwide campaign to get out the vote in the November general election. The goal is to raise awareness and activism of women in key states, resulting in stronger conservative leadership on the state and national level.

"We know that when conservatives vote their values, they elect men and women whom CWA and CWA members can work with to see that founding principles are applied and enacted into law," said Nance. "We need conservatives to turn out in great numbers in order to get legislation passed that will move our great country back to a secure footing."

The "She Votes 2012" campaign will work to mobilize members in key states to change the trajectory of the nation through grassroots education and activism. Organizers will focus on three main areas:

• Voter registration

• Voter identification

• Voter turnout

"We will light a 'grassfire' amongst our constituents to reach women, families, and cultural leaders," Nance said. "This is a critical election year, and the time is now for women to stand up and let their voices be heard."

Field directors will use phone-banks, social media, and public events to encourage voter participation. They will work with state CWA chapters, other organizations, and local churches as they carry out the mission of "She Votes 2012."

CWA is the nation's largest public policy women's organization and is uniquely positioned to connect with and advocate for women and families. Over the past three decades, CWA has built an effective grassroots network of conservative activists, which includes 500,000 constituents and 600 chapters reaching women, families, and cultural leaders.
