    Make "Good Trouble"

    and Save Our Democracy!

    A fundraiser in celebration of the life and work of the late Georgia Congressman and Civil Rights leader, John R. Lewis.

    john_lewis_selma_1965.1c.jpg 

    Democrats Abroad is commemorating Congressman John Lewis with two online screenings of the documentary "John Lewis - Get in the Way" on July 11, various actions days after Congress resumes legislative business, and a Forum on July 17, the one-year anniversary of his passing.

    Often described as the conscience of the Congress, John Lewis was a friend to Democrats Abroad. To raise funds for DA’s GOTV efforts, we ask everyone—whether you attend or not—to donate $19.65—or for those who wish to be a Gold Star Supporter, $80 representing the 80 years of John Lewis’ extraordinary, courageous life.

    Please join Democrats Abroad to honor the memory of John Lewis and carry forward the flame of his dedication to voting rights for all.

    Let´s cross that finish line

    We have come a long way, but we still have not reached the finish line. In the United States Constitution women do not have equal rights under the law. Well over 80% of other nations do! When I tried to be an architect major at a state university in Ohio, in 1962, I was discouraged. Not because of grades but because of my sex. In 1963, my sister was denied the opportunity to complete her student teaching, when she revealed she was pregnant. A woman could not appear in front of a class “in that condition”. For my first car loan for a moderately priced car in 1967, which was repaid in 6 months, I had to find a man that would co-sign, even though I had an adequate stable income. While the situation has improved the current legal and judicial systems, often have a negative impact on women. The majority of legislators & judges that make critical decisions, have been male; thus, the male perspective & experience is the norm and not the female perspective & experience. This has affected wages, family planning access, views on violence against women and harassment, childcare options, maternity leave, promotions in the workplace, and much more. It is time women, be not just viewed as equals, but are equal under the law. We owe this to our children and grandchildren, both female & male. Christina - lives in Oslo Norway, and votes in Ohio.

    International Women’s Day in Norway

    Highlights of the March 8 events in Oslo

    There is an irony in the fact that Norway, which is ranked as the second most female friendly nation (2018 ranking*1), is so dedicated to the International Women’s Day. Have they not already achieved equality? The strong engagement is a good barometer for Norway’s general commitment to support women’s rights. The laws here do support women both in the workplace and home. Norway, traditionally a farming nation, recognized the contributions of farmer wives, decades ago, by giving them the status of a regular workers, entitled them to increased social security and workman’s benefits. Now girls are taken over farms since the law on inheritance has changed, favoring the first-born child, replacing the first born “male” as the heir. The law now also states that all corporate boards must be minimum 40% female; however, women tend not to rise as rapidly as men on the corporate ladder. A major newspaper recently reported that more men are going into female dominated vocations, such as nursing and teaching, and a larger percentage of women now seek higher education than men.
