|Celebrate Women's History Month - Protect Our Voting Rights!|
Following the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention, women spent over seven decades tirelessly campaigning and organizing in efforts to secure the right to vote. Success came when Congress passed, and President Woodrow Wilson signed, the 19th Amendment in 1920.
But women's work did not stop there.
Today, the work to empower our electorate continues as women remain underrepresented in elected office and disproportionately affected by discriminatory voter ID laws.
This Women's History Month, the League of Women Voters is remembering the work generations of women have done to secure and protect the right to vote.
For today's Daily Action, take a look at the fight to protect voting rights throughout history, and learn how you can join the movement to empower voters moving forward!

|Disbar Lawyer Who Proposed to Kill Gay People|
Matt McLaughlin is a lawyer in California who recently proposed an outrageous initiative called the "Sodomite Suppression Act", which would allow gays and lesbians to be killed. It is absolutely atrocious that someone who advocates for such violence and bigotry should be able to practice law and represent others.
For today's Secondary Action, sign the petition asking the State Bar of California to disbar Mr. McLaughlin immediately.
