The Twittersphere is blowing up with the latest on the 2012 elections. YouTube is playing Rick PerryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s memory-lapse video like crazy. And Occupy Wall Street is spreading like a social-media wildfire.
WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s missing from the conversation? Women's healthcare issues. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund is jumping in to help women access and share information on these with its new engagement campaign, Women Are Watching.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve launched Women are Watching to give women a place to share their energy and important information regarding whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s at stake in the upcoming election,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Women care about how politicians are playing politics with womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s health."
The siteÃ¢â‚¬”which hinges on tweets, comments, and lots of sharingÃ¢â‚¬”seeks to educate women across the country about womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s healthcare issues and where candidates stand on them.
In 2012, we all have the power to help choose the candidate that will ultimately determine the future of womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s healthcare. To learn more, visit Women Are Watching, follow @ppact, or check out the hashtag #women2012.
