Barack Rally for Women's Rights in Akron

Here's something very important to do on Saturday:

On July 19th and 20th of 1848, one hundred and sixty years ago, a
conference was held in the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Seneca Falls
to organize the Women's Suffrage Movement.

Seventy-two long years later, in 1920, women won their right to vote.

On Saturday, July 19th, here in Akron, Ohio, at 11:00 a.m., the Barack
Obama campaign is holding a rally to commemorate the 160th
Anniversary of the Seneca Falls Conference. The rally will be held at
the Sojourner Truth Monument on North High Street.

All women and men and their sons and daughters who support women's
rights and want to celebrate the woman's vote are encouraged to come
and Rally for Barack Obama's Presidential Campaign.

Bring with you everyone you know who values the right to vote, values
equal rights for women, and wants to see Barack Obama in the White
House on January 20th, 2009.
