Take Action Tuesday  

I'm going to try something here. I want to make sure that this blog is not only for bitching about the problems in the world, but also exists to help spread the word about little actions you can take to help women, and other minorities. I know it can be difficult to figure out exactly what you can do to help. Not everyone can become a women's rights pioneer and organize protests in front of the White House. So, I'm presenting Take Action Tuesday. Every Tuesday, I will post something you can do - an event to attend, a letter to send, a message to get out - to make the world a better place for us. I'll try to make sure it requires little or no money, because I understand that not everyone has endless dough to give away. What I post on Tuesdays may seem small, but trust me, all our efforts will add up and we will make a difference. I promise. Besides, it couldn't help to try, right?

For today's Take Action Tuesday, I'm going to link you to a page on NARAL Pro-Choice America. On it, there's a form you can fill out to send to your representatives to urge them to push for more affordable birth control. There has been a large increase in the price of birth control prescriptions, which makes it difficult for low-income women to obtain it. As we know, birth control is crucial to keep our women and children healthy and safe, so it's absolutely necessary that women be able to afford it. If you agree, click here, and take two minutes to fill out the form. Thanks, everyone :)

What next?

    Have signed. Here in the UK you can get birth control free on prescription - I wish it was that way in the States.

    Thanks! I appreciate it.

    Yep - the UK has MUCH better health care than the United States does. You guys are a lot smarter than us when it comes to that ;)
