According to the Census Bureau, women make up 51% of the population of the United States. More specifically, about 166 million women roam the streets of the New World. Do you know the power those numbers hold? Here’s a quick hint: a lot.
It is often said that power lies in numbers, and there’s some truth in that — especially with the elections around the corner. Thankfully, Supermajority is on top of their game and using data to their advantage.
Supermajority has designated October 17th as a Day of Action through a collective movement named “Women Are Voting.” Ninety-four million women in the U.S. will be able to cast their ballot on Saturday, which further accentuates this event’s value. “Women Are Voting” aims to bring women together via shared views and concerns for the nation’s future.
“Despite these incredibly difficult and unprecedented times, I’m hopeful because I have seen that when women come together, we can build a movement. And right now, women across this country — of all backgrounds, races, and ages — are fired up,” Supermajority Co-founder Alicia Garza told WBIW. “They are putting on their masks, grabbing their hand sanitizer and bringing their sisters, their mothers, their friends, to the polls. And trust me, these women are not going to let anything stand in their way.”
Organizations such as the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and Women’s March are joining in on “Women Are Voting” as well.
These upcoming elections are breathing down our neck. The anxiety is piling up, and Mercury Retrograde is dragging many of us by las greñas. But, this is not the time to take it easy. We must make sure our power is felt — now more than ever.
Supermajority has stated that they want to provide women with the knowledge they need to change the country’s direction for good, and they’re definitely doing just that.
