We can't say the "V" word

What's the "V" word? We can’t say the word "Vagina" out loud, or we too might be banned from speaking on the floor of the Michigan House of Representatives. This happened to farm team member and State Rep. Lisa Brown on Wednesday.

Her exact comment (on yet another anti-choice and anti-woman bill which the Republican-controlled house rammed through) was "Finally, Mr. Speaker, I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but no means no."1

Apparently it's okay to legislate them, but not talk about them. This kind of undemocratic anti-women right wing censorship is exactly why Progressive Majority exists - to elect more progressives on a state level and fight the right wing stranglehold on state governments across the country.

We just endorsed Lisa again for this year, and here is your chance to show your support. Please give $5 today to say that you stand behind Lisa Brown.

We're working to take back the Michigan House, and several other state legislatures this year. Stay tuned for more endorsements from us, and more about how you can fight the extremist GOP takeover of several states (maybe including yours?). In the meantime, please give $5 or more to Lisa's campaign to show you have her back.
