Readout from DNC women’s events

(quote in the title is from Cecile Richards)

At the women’s events throughout the DNC – it was very much a love in for Obama – including Emily’s list chair, Ellen Malcolm, throwing their support to him. 

Alice Germond (DNC secretary)

  • Women very much matter and are 51% of the electorate
  • The Democratic platform this year has more women’s issues in it than ever before (ie equal pay)
  • Women are typically the last group to make up their minds in elections
  • Women also hate negative politics

Sheila Johnson (business leader)

  • The final three candidates represent 3 very discriminated against groups: women, elderly and African Americans
  • “Depending on the worl we put in over the next 9 weeks, we will get the President we deserve”

Cecile Richards and Rep. Jan Schakowsky (I think) finished things out
