2012 and the War on (and for) Women

Women NN13Some of 2012’s most exciting races involve strong, progressive women who are leading the national conversation on not only on women’s issues but also things like the economy and LGBT rights.

Massachusetts’ Elizabeth Warren, Hawaii’s Mazie Hirono and Washington’s Darcy Burner are each known for standing up for workers, the middle class and equal opportunity for all. That’s why we’re excited to have the three of them on the big stage at Netroots Nation in a few weeks.

In a Friday lunchtime session moderated by the Huffington Post’s Amanda Terkel, Warren, Hirono and Burner will address the past year’s growing War on Women and the GOP war on the middle class. They’ll discuss what playing offense looks like for women and how election wins this fall will translate to policy victories in 2013 and beyond.

To supplement this keynote session, we’ve also got several amazing panels based on this set of issues where the conversation will continue. You can explore those sessions here.

We’re looking forward to seeing you in Providence. If you haven’t registered yet, just click here.
