Women’s vote 2013

Melissa Fabello, editor of “Everyday Feminism” and a sexuality educator, makes her debut on SPAR with Jamila.

The two look at the gubernatorial race in Virginia and the Mayoral race in New York City, assessing what women and those voting for women’s interests may wish to consider as the country sees its population change. The rise of the youth and the female vote as major segments capable of swaying major elections is not unexpected, but still needs some time to coalesce in a manner that can bring more political power to those voters.

Fabello says there is much to be happy about, but there’s still some work to be done in terms of making a more politically active and aware voting public.
