Arkansas Women Vote Hosts First Public Event Sept. 23

10364040_640800825990331_8291306223420876131_nWHO:  Arkansas Women Vote

https://www.facebook.com/ArkansasWomenVote or https://twitter.com/ARwomenvote

WHAT:  Public event to raise awareness of issues affecting women in Arkansas

WHEN: 11:30 a.m., Tuesday, September 23, 2014

WHERE:  Decorative Arts Museum (formerly the Terry House), 411 E 7th St., Little Rock, Arkansas 72202

BACKGROUND: Arkansas Women Vote, a group of Arkansas women who formed a committee born out of the frustration that the political dialogue fails to include discussions on issues important to women, working families and the elderly, will have a public meeting at 11:30 a.m. at the Decorative Arts Museum (the Terry House), 411 E. 7th St. in downtown Little Rock on Tues., Sept 23.

Arkansas Women Vote is using that particular venue as it was there that the Women’s Emergency Committee formed in September 1958 to reopen Little Rock public schools. While the times were in turmoil then, Arkansas Women Vote feels there are some similarities with the political climate today. This group of women have banded together to try and make a difference. Some of the issues identified by the Arkansas Women Vote include:

  • Increasing the Minimum Wage
  • Health Care
  • Early Education
  • Affordable Child Care
  • Care of the Elderly
  • Hunger and Poverty
  • Violence Against Women

Arkansas Women Vote wants women to be informed about these issues and examine the candidates’ positions on issues important to them. According to Arkansas Women Vote, women can make a difference in this election, but they have to go vote. Historically, the number of women voting in mid-term elections declines when compared to general election participation. The public event will provide more information for women who are interested in participating in upcoming elections.
