What is your freedom worth to
EXERCISE YOUR FREEDOMS: FREE SPEECH,
RELIGIOUS CHOICE, RIGHT TO EDUCATION,
RIGHT TO VOTE, ETC.
SUSAN B. ANTHONY SAID, "THERE WILL NEVER BE COMPLETE
EQUALITY UNTIL WOMEN THEMSELVES HELP MAKE LAWS
AND ELECT LAWMAKERS." SHE FOUGHT FOR AND WON THE
VOTE, BUT LESS THAN HALF OF THE ELIGIBLE WOMEN USED
THEIR VOTE IN THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.
Remember, your vote makes your voice count on the issues you care about
most. Every eligible voter, male and female, should USE IT!
