DECATUR, IL – The women’s rights activist Alice Paul once proclaimed that, “Unless women are prepared to fight politically, they must be content to be ignored politically.” On International Women’s Day, the Macon County Democratic Central Committee wants to celebrate all the women elected officials in Macon County, and thank them for ensuring women’s voices cannot be ignored locally.

In addition, it is important to take stock of the battles women still have to face in America today. While there are more women in politics today than ever before, issues around equality still plague our society. From making sure women are paid equitably to defending our reproductive health freedoms with the Women’s Health Protection Act, the fight to ensure the inclusion of all issues related to women is ongoing. The Macon County Democratic Central Committee extends a thank you to everyone in Macon County that has taken an active role in improving the lives of women, from our female elected officials above, to every one that volunteers for a campaign, writes a postcard, or calls their representative.
If you or someone you know is interested in running for office, or wants to become more active politically on issues affecting women, please contact the Macon County Democratic Central Committee by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or following the committee on Facebook.
