Dr. Anne Klaeysen, first female Leader of the New York Society for Ethical Culture, spoke on March 4, 2018 about “Undone By Women.” (Click on camera icon in upper right corner to open video.)
Women in the United States were granted suffrage less than a century ago and still do not have an Equal Rights Amendment. Throughout our history, we have left our homes and taken to the streets to demand the vote, choice over our own bodies, to be seen and heard. Every generation of mothers tries to leave her daughters a better world. Yet time and again we are thwarted by misogynist forces. The legacy of the second Women’s March on January 20th, fueled by the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, must be to unite and undo these forces once and for all.

The American Ethical Union has passed a resolution--Defending the Right to Vote--to "stand up for a democracy that protects our values and our constitutional right to cast our vote." The words of the resolution are contained in the graphic as a reminder of the importance of protecting this precious right. You can also read the resolution at aeu.org/resource/2019-defending-the-right-to-vote/. Please do read it.
The resolution cites many concerns about ways in which our right to vote is being eroded and why it needs to be defended and then points to multiple ways to defend it. Certainly we need to exercise our right to vote at every opportunity, but we also need to work together to ensure that everyone who is eligible to vote can get registered and have convenient access to the ballot.
Where to begin? Anywhere. When to start? Now. What to do? Everything you can.
