Press Release

For Immediate Release

Ms. Je'Amour P.Matthew
822 Spring Street
North, Braddock, PA

Democracy In Suffrage gave a press release on September 26, 2008 and planted the seed, knowing that it was going to take time for this new entity to show growth and progress. Now starting to sprout with several actions under our root, Democracy In Suffrage is ready to face the press and our followers again to update all on the progress of our endeavors, and then map out and release the next step of operation. Political action is all well and good, but if we do not educate as we go, how will we get the message out there? -- that women's rights or human rights have been violated, that the now is here, that it is time for people to stand up and say enough is enough, that through action we can take on and address the culprit.
In the last press release it was brought to our attention that on Friday, and on October 4, a certain well known magazine issued prominently on its front page an article called “The Sexy Puritan.” The article in question came with a visual of Governor Sarah Palin, “The Sexy Puritan.” The article, which purports to examine Governor Palin’s impact as a “powerful new Christian right archetype” is capped by an illustration of Palin in high heels, perched on a stool, with her chest popping out of her skimpy dress and a bible squeezed between her bare thighs. The article went so far as to mention a blog called Christian Nymphos. I can go on and on about this grievous article and this magazine. But the point is that this magazine is not a rag or a tabloid--this is a serious journalistic magazine, tied to a prominent newspaper.
In the year 2008, after 160 years of battles for women's rights, it seems we have lost ground, not gained it.
Democracy In Suffrage calls this press release to demand action, and to lay out a course of action...
The press release starts at twelve noon, Thursday, October 23, 2008 in the Rotunda of the Pennsylvania State Capitol in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
