Warrior Queens Petitioning the President

Hey Warrior Queens!

I just wanted to alert you to the latest petition I've seen on Change.org that's worth supporting. Here's an excerpt:


When we learned that it's been two decades since a presidential debate was moderated by a woman, we -- three high school students from New Jersey -- decided to take action.

More than 115,000 people have signed our petition calling on the Commission on Presidential Debates to name a woman as a moderator for one of the three U.S. presidential debates to take place this Fall. Now we need to show the Romney and Obama campaigns just how important this campaign is, since both campaigns also have a say in who gets to moderate the debates.

Women and men will never be truly equal in our country until they’re one and the same in positions of power and both visible in politics. There is no reason why a woman shouldn’t have a chance to show what she’s capable of by moderating debates in the upcoming election.

This is important to each of us, for different reasons. Here's what we think, and we hope you'll join the campaign and sign our petition.

I would definitely check it out (maybe sign it) and read these girl's reasoning for their petition!! They're definitely warrior queens :)
