Women say NO - Part 9

"The Woman's Party is made up of women of all races, creeds and nationalities who are united on the one program of working to raise the status of women."
–Alice Paul

I am a woman from rural America and Sarah Palin is not my standard bearer. She is against choice, against equal pay for equal work, and for a narrow and exclusive view of the world. It is easy to use the epithet of elitist when those you oppose are in fact, more highly qualified and far better educated than you are.
–Cynthia G., Grand Canyon, AZ

Totally offended by this candidate
–Janet C., 72, Sheffield, MA

I couldn't support to candidate less: I enjoy my reproductive rights and reading uncensored library books. I take responsibility for climate change and I want to help the polar bear. Creationism in classrooms? Abstinence only sex-ed? What year is this??
–Amy F., 26, Boston

I try not to vote against my own best interests, and Sarah Palin does NOT represent the best interests of women.
–Eileen P., NY

I think that Sarah Palin represents everything that is wrong about the Republican Party, and that having her as our second in command would do nothing more than invalidate all the previous battles won over women's rights.
–Lauren F, 22, Mountain View, CA

Your letter said it all, but in my own words: Sarah Palin's election to any high office would be a blow not just to women's rights but to human rights.
–Ann G., rural Massachusetts

I don't support Palin because of her beliefs and her politics it has nothing to do with being a woman!
–Jennifer P., 43, Baltimore

Palin's nomination dishonors the women who have succeeded in politics--Democratic and Republican--and, as the grandmother of a 3-year-old granddaughter--the possibility of Palin in such a powerful position terrifies me.
—Cindy P., 68, Chatham, NY
