Women in Wisconsin for Obama

Since the first day of his presidency, Barack Obama has proven a commitment to advance the equal rights of women.

"For me, as a woman and a minority, I feel Barack Obama really looks out for me and my community. I'm from Milwaukee and I really think he cares about us. I'm really excited to take part in this election. It is my first one and it's a huge one. It's a big deal and I'm really excited to be a part of it." -Asia, Milwaukee

"Voting for the other candidate feels like it would be taking women's rights backwards. As a woman, it's important to me to keep things going the way they have been. If someone paid me for my vote I still wouldn't do it." -Mytrinh, Milwaukee

"My daughter and I talk about politics a lot. She is flying back from her trip early so that we can go vote together for Barack Obama on Election Day. There are too many issues that are too important to both of us." -Marie, Racine

"I'm from Ripon, the birth place of the Republican party, and as a young woman it means a lot to me that Barack Obama is on my side with his support of planned parenthood, Lilly Ledbetter, and making sure that I don't have to pay more for health insurance just because of my gender." -Abril, Ripon

"My number one reason for supporting Barack Obama and Joe Biden really is women's rights. It's my honor to vote for them." -Judy, Hilbert

"As a woman I want to be treated fairly. That's why I'm voting for President Obama" -Sarah, Oshkosh

"I know a lot of lesbian couples and I want someone in the white house that will fight for them not just as members of the LGBT community but also as women."-Melissa, Madison
