Wake Up America and Vote
November 4, 2008 post by Linda Basch I know we all share the feeling that this election is historic, that change is in the air. There's an excitement that we all feel as we go to the polls. But whatever the outcome, we need to be thinking about the huge agenda facing the new president and his team, and the ways we need to act as leaders ourselves in helping to bring about the changes we all crave. I was inspired this morning when I read the post of the Council's dear friend, Jacki Zehner, who points to some of the changes we need to make in addressing the challenges before us. Two points that she makes, which we've also blogged about, include taking personal responsibility for our actions, and the importance of making sure that women's perspectivies, and women themselves, are at decision-making tables. And please join us tomorrow evening at 7 p.m. ET as we blog live about what the election results mean for women at the Feminist Town Forum.
