Help @AAUW #TrickorTweet for a Strong Women’s Economic Agenda this HalloweenOctober 29–31, 2015
Time: 1–2 p.m. ET each day
Halloween is right around the corner, but here at AAUW, we know that there are scarier things out there than vampires and zombies. Whether it’s the gender pay gap, student debt, campus sexual assault, or lack of paid leave, women deal with the real-life terrors of gender inequity 365 days a year, not just on October 31. This Halloween, join @AAUW in ringing doorbells — er, Twitter handles — for women’s economic security!
Our #TrickorTweet Twitterstorm will take place from 1 to 2 p.m. ET each day between October 29 and 31. During that time, we encourage you to tweet at members of Congress and 2016 presidential candidates asking where they stand on the issues in our women’s economic agenda. Do they support equal pay? What about raising the minimum wage? What are their plans to tackle student debt or to make campuses safe for students? Will they fight for millions of American workers to finally get paid family leave? We want to know! Remind them, women are watching, and women vote!
This Halloween, don’t say boo. Say #womensucceed! Use our sample tweets, and choose from the Twitter handles below to help join the fight.
