Women's Day of Action: Nov. 4



Tomorrow, Nov. 4, is "Women's Day of Action." Bloggers will be writing about it (blog-a-thon), and you can find posts on Twitter about it under the hashtag #whc. Be sure to spread the word, and take part in whatever way you can! This is such an important issue.

I also received this press release
from the National Women's Law Center and wanted to share it:

VIGIL IN WASHINGTON, DC TO RAISE AWARENESS FOR
HEALTH CARE REFORM DURING WOMEN’S DAY OF ACTION

Women Across America Blog, Tweet, and Share Health Care Stories; Rally for Reform That Works for Women and Families
