"'We have to make our voices heard'
For Beleña Catalina Martinez
Whatever happens in my life, it's always the women around me who help me get through it: my mom, sisters, cousins, friends, and my daughter, Emme.
They inspire me, and they've made me who I am today.
Thanks to President Obama, the women in my life -- and women across the country -- have seen true progress. We will get access to the affordable quality health care we deserve because of Obamacare. Girls can see three women on the Supreme Court and look up to them as role models. Women have greater ability to fight back when they don't get equal pay for equal work.
Having a president who is a strong advocate for women means a lot to me. And I'm not alone -- take a look at this video, and see what I mean:
Growing up, my family didn't always have a lot -- plenty of people told me a girl from the Bronx could never make it. But my mom was a teacher who worked hard to send me and my sisters to school, and I refused to give up on my dreams.
That's President Obama's story, too. He didn't have anything handed to him.
So when he talks about giving everyone a chance to succeed, no matter where you started out, it's because he knows what it's like for families who are struggling to make ends meet and make a better life for their kids.
President Obama has got our backs. We've got to get his.
Watch this video, then pass it along -- it's up to us to make sure every woman makes her voice heard in this election:
As you can see and read, it is using "all the heavy artillery" to snatch votes.
Very moving the mail. And the actress and singer is admirable, no matter who weigh.
