Summary
"What Every Woman Needs to Know to Bring About Change in the Voting Booth. In a presidential election year with our currently divided political climate, it is more important than ever for women voters to be educated and informed about issues that affect them deeply. Your Voice, Your Vote 2020-21 Edition is a manifesto for every woman voter and for male voters who care about the women in their lives. Martha Burk empowers the reader to cut through the double talk, irrelevancies, and false promises, and focuses directly on what's at stake for women not only from now through the 2020 election, but also in the years beyond. Written from a nonpartisan viewpoint, Dr. Burk lays out the records of both the Democratic and Republican parties as well as their platforms on topics such as: Health care, Pay equity, Reproductive rights, Maternity leave, family leave, and child care, Social security, sick leave, and long-term care, Violence against women, LGBTQ rights, Education and Title IX, Taxes and the economy, Women in the Military, Affirmative action, The Equal Rights Amendment. Informative and insightful, Your Voice, Your Vote should be carried to every political rally, every press conference, every precinct meeting-and into the voting booth"--
