(BPRW) New Toolkit Launches to Encourage Voting Amongst Black Women

Tools Provide Black Female Voters with Necessary Resources to Increase Voter Participation


(BLACK PR WIRE) – NEW YORK, NY (October 6, 2014) – Today Higher Heights unveiled #BlackWomenVote, a web resource for Black women voters. Higher Heights, a group dedicated to building a national civic engagement infrastructure and network to strengthen Black women’s leadership capacity, will use the next 30 days until Election Day, to encourage Black women to turnout in high numbers during the midterm election.

Black women are among the country’s most politically active citizens. In 2012, Black women had the highest rate of voter turnout of any group, and they represented almost 60 percent of Black voters who went to the polls. These statistics are clear evidence of Black women’s ability to be defining factors in election outcomes. However, in the 2010 midterms, just 46.5 percent of Black women voted. #BlackWomenVote aims to provide Black women with the tools to increase their turnout for the midterm elections.

The website and toolkit includes features such as; a “Pledge to be a Higher Heights Voter”, a “Personal Voting Plan”, a “Knowing your Voter Status” guide, a do-it-yourself “Sister-to-Sister Calling List”, as well as an “Activate your Online Network” checklist.

“Black women must show up to the polls if we truly want to create a more representative political body that will fight for pay equity, healthcare access, improved educational opportunities and other issues that affect Black women on a daily basis,” said Higher Heights co-founder Glynda C. Carr. “The forthcoming November 4, midterm provides us with the opportunity to begin addressing these issues and become more fully and consistently involved in the political process.”

“The Status of Black Women in American Politics” report released by Higher Heights earlier this year provides a comprehensive historical outline of Black women’s struggle for political representation and discusses the current landscape of political leadership for Black women across the country as well as their growing political influence. It demonstrates the need for greater engagement, recruitment, and inclusion of Black women in politics and government.

The report notes that Black women are 7.4% of the U.S. population and 7.4% of the electorate. However, there are only 14 Black women in Congress (2.6%), 2 Black women in statewide elected executive office, and 241 Black women in state legislatures (3.3%).

Follow the conversation on social media for the next 30 days at #BlackWomenVote.

About Higher Heights:
Higher Heights is building a national infrastructure to harness Black women’s political power and leadership potential. Headquartered in New York, NY, Higher Heights Leadership Fund, a national 501(c)(3) organization and its sister organization Higher Heights for America 501(c)(4) is investing in a long-term strategy to expand and support a Black women’s leadership pipeline at all levels and strengthen their civic participation beyond just Election Day.

BLACK FEMINISTS LAUNCH A CALL FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT NARRATIVES!!

TRUTH & RECONCILIATION COMMISSION CAMPAIGN


[September 29th, 2014 - New York, NY] Human rights organization, Black Women's Blueprint officially launched their Truth and Reconciliation Commission campaign. Black Women's Blueprint is a Black feminist community dedicated to providing counseling and healing services to people of color who have experienced domestic and sexual violence. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission aims to collect 1,000 stories from Black women about how sexual assault has impacted their lives in the workforce, educational settings, and general financial stability.

Farah Tanis, co-founder of Black Women's Blueprint states that "The Truth & Reconciliation Commission aims to engage the community with new and effective responses. The responses would promote accountability through targeted relevant organizing, designed to affect systemic change on particular laws and policies, which continuously fail to reduce the high incidents of rape on Black women in their communities."

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission utilizes multiple tools for Black women across the world to share their stories. First, Black Women's Blueprint's interactive website, MyFreedomLounge.com, allows survivors of sexual assault to submit their typed stories for other members of the website to offer support and guidance towards healing. Survivors are also able to text, record, or set up a time to share their stories either in person, if located in the New York City area, by calling the number 646-647-5414. The identities of those who submit their stores are kept in confidentiality.

Black Women's Blueprint's hopes to collect 1,000 narratives about sexual assault in correlation with economic injustice and to present the gathered information to the United Nations in 2016. The organization plans to use the Truth Commission to instill policy changes such as protecting survivors in the workplace by removing the 'at will' policy which could release an employee for no reason, although some women may be coping with sexual violence. Additionally, BWB would like the narratives to advocate for women on college campuses to have a complete understanding of their rights as survivors under Title IX.

Confrontation 9: Taking on the Challenges of Work, Family and Purpose


Dallas, TX, August 6, 2014 – Mother Teresa said it best when she said, "I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” Dilshad Dayani routinely casts many ripples of her own as she advocates for women around the globe through speaking engagements, community initiatives and her new release Confrontation 9: Taking on the Challenges of Work, Family and Purpose.

Dayani's message is one that every man, woman, boy and girl should hear. It's a message that explores the cultural perspective of success – questioning culture, customs, norms, traditions and unwarranted conformity. She lays the foundation of how genders define success and how culture influences those ideas. Additionally, she points out that compliancy can oftentimes stifle one's journey to success and that the transition from the comfort zone to the adventure zone is key.

"Breaking the glass ceiling,” says Dayani, "… it's something that is attainable for all women. Every woman has the power within her to be fulfilled, worthy, and self-empowered if she knows how to achieve her clarity of vision, purpose and values.”

Confrontation 9 offers simple strategies, designed to help women realize their true potential through motivation and empowerment, despite societal challenges and drive for approval. Dayani delves into tactics like finding confidence, and overcoming 9 roadblocks to break through stereotypical roles. The end result will be a legacy that every woman as a mother aspires to live and leave for her children building on through joy, enrichment and compassion on a daily basis.

A portion of the proceeds from the sales of Confrontation 9 go to World Women Global Council (www.WorldWomenGlobalCouncil.org) – an organization focused on empowering girls and women.

(BPRW) Women “Go Red” with the American Heart Association


(BLACK PR WIRE) – DALLAS, Feb. 10 – February is a month for matters of the heart across America, and it’s even a greater matter for African-American women, who are at greatest risk. The American Heart Association is impacting the health of women by saving 330 lives a day. Every February, American Heart Month, millions of women participate in the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement to increase awareness and inspire action in support of the estimated 43 million women affected by their No. 1 killer, heart disease.

African-American women are the most affected by the disease. Research shows that the leading cause of death triples among black women, killing nearly 50,000 every year. Given the shocking statistics, Go Red takes pride in commemorating its 10th anniversary of targeted programs, which includes efforts to close the gap among diverse women and decrease heart disease deaths by 34 percent in all women.

Like Keisha Hawes, heart attack survivor at age 31, many women never thought heart disease could happen to them - consequently, ignoring or downplaying the signs. Keisha says, "This was my warning sign that I needed to make big changes. Now I have the opportunity to do things differently rather than just dropping dead one day." Don’t let tragedy be your drive to “do things differently.” Let the stories of real survivors lead you to be proactive so that we can, together, prevent tragedy from happening.

Join the 56.6 million people who visit the Go Red for Women website, and most importantly, join the nearly 2 million who have registered to take action in the movement! While Go Red has made a remarkable difference, for over a decade now, the fact is that 1,100 women are still dying of heart disease, daily. It’s critical to know your risks, live healthfully and get involved, today! For more information, visit www.GoRedForWomen.org.

    A Look at the Wage Gap for African American Women in 20 States

    - New Analysis Reveals Punishing Wage Gap in States with the Largest Number of African American Women in the Workforce -


    WASHINGTON, D.C. – As the 113th Congress begins, a new analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data released today shows that an important constituency – African American women – are suffering from a pervasive gender-based wage gap in the very states where the majority of them work. In the 20 states with the largest number of African American women who work full time, year round, the wage gap ranges from 55 and 87 cents for every dollar paid to men in those states.

    The analysis was conducted by the National Partnership for Women & Families. The state-specific findings for all 20 states can be found at www.NationalPartnership.org/AAGap. (The National Partnership conducted a matching analysis for Latinas in 20 states. It can be found here: www.NationalPartnership.org/LatinaGap.)

    Wage Gap for African American Women




    “Women of color are hard hit by a kind of perfect – and perfectly devastating – storm caused by discrimination, a struggling economy and the country’s failure to adopt family friendly workplace policies,” said Debra L. Ness, president of the National Partnership for Women & Families. “These new data show that the wage gap is costing women of color thousands of dollars in critical income each year that could be spent on food, rent, health care and on meeting other fundamental needs for their families. It’s an unacceptable situation that should be a resounding wake-up call for lawmakers who have the power to do something about it.”

    According to the new analysis:
    Among the 20 states with the largest populations of African American women working full time, year round, the wage gap is most severe in Louisiana and Mississippi, where women are paid just 55 cents and 61 cents, respectively, for every dollar paid to men in their states.

    California’s gap is smallest for African American women among the states analyzed, but African American women still lose $6,342 each year compared to men in the state. African American women in Florida, Illinois and Missouri are paid just 73 cents for every dollar paid to their states’ men. In New York, which has the highest population of employed African American women in the country, African American women are paid 79 cents for every dollar paid to men in the state. And African American women in Texas are paid 78 cents for every dollar paid to Texas men. Wage gap information for each of the 20 states with the large numbers of employed African American women can be found at www.NationalPartnership.org/AAGap.

    Nationally, African American women are paid just 70 cents for every dollar paid to all men. That amounts to a loss of $14,701 each year. In general, women of color fare worse than women overall, who are paid 77 cents for every dollar paid to all men – or $11,084 less per year.

    According to the new analysis, eliminating the national wage gap would mean that African American women and their families would have enough money for more than two years’ worth of food, 4,549 gallons of gas, more than 16 months of rent, almost 10 months’ worth of mortgage and utilities payments, or more than three years of family health insurance premiums. The loss of these basic necessities can be especially punishing during tough economic times, and it adds up over a lifetime.

    The Paycheck Fairness Act would close loopholes in the Equal Pay Act and establish stronger workplace protections for women. The U.S. House of Representatives passed it in 2009, and it came two votes short of moving forward in the Senate in 2010. Its introduction in the 113th Congress is expected early this year.

    “Make no mistake about it, lawmakers have the power to help close this gap and promote economic security for women and families in their districts,” Ness continued. “Lawmakers who are serious about rebuilding our economy and valuing families will work to address discrimination and the punishing wag gap that results. Hardworking women deserve to be paid fairly no matter where they live or their race. By overwhelming majorities, Americans know this and support federal action. It’s time for Congress to act.”

    The National Partnership’s findings for the 20 states with the largest numbers of employed African American women and Latinas can be found at www.NationalPartnership.org/AAGap and www.NationalPartnership.org/LatinaGap. More information on the wage gap can be found at www.NationalPartnership.org/FairPay.

    The National Partnership for Women & Families is a nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy group dedicated to promoting fairness in the workplace, access to quality health care, and policies that help women and men meet the dual demands of work and family. More information is available at www.NationalPartnership.org.

    March is National Women’s History Month, and Wells Fargo has a rich history of working with women business owners and providing them access to capital and financial services. Since introducing the women’s lending commitment 18 years ago, Wells Fargo has provided more than $38 billion in capital to women business owners, a group that grew in size by more than 20 percent from 2002 to 2007, according to the latest Census data. Today, approximately 30 percent of businesses in the U.S. are owned by women, according to the National Women’s Business Council.

    “Women-owned businesses are among America’s fastest growing segments, and we are honored to support their role in shaping the future of small business,” said Stevens. “As a leader in lending to women, Wells Fargo is dedicated to helping women succeed financially — in business and personally.”

    Wells Fargo’s first lending commitment in 1995 established a goal to lend $1 billion to women business owners over three years. Fueled by the continued growth of women business owners, the goal was increased, most recently in 2003.

    In addition to the cumulative lending goal, Wells Fargo supports numerous outreach efforts to build relationships with women business owners and help them to succeed financially. Wells Fargo is a proud supporter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and the Women Presidents’ Organization, as well as several other organizations focused on the education, growth and advancement of women business owners. Wells Fargo provides the full array of financial products and services to satisfy all of the financial needs of women-owned businesses, such as banking, business loans and lines of credit, credit cards, payroll, merchant services, insurance, retirement planning, and online resources.

    For an example of how Wells Fargo helped meet the financing needs of one woman-owned small business, see the story of GLAMGLOW, a Los Angeles-based consumer products company owned by Shannon Dellimore.

    Fierce Angels: Living with a Legacy, from the Sacred Dark Feminine to the Strong Black Woman

    (Lawrence Hill Books, an imprint of Chicago Review Press, April 2013) by longtime NPR personality Sheri Parks, PhD., foreword by Marcia Ann Gillespie


    The “Strong Black Woman” has been a part of mainstream culture for centuries, as a myth, a goddess, a positive role model, a stereotype, and as a burden. In *Fierce Angels,* Sheri Parks explores the concept of the Strong Black Woman, its influence on people of all races, and the ways in which black women respond to and are affected by this image.

    Expanded and revised in a new edition, *Fierce Angels* originally published to great acclaim. Essence says, “Parks fearlessly dives into the minefield of race, sex and popular culture in her smart, sharp cultural study.” This edition includes two new chapters on the Sacred Dark Feminine in alchemy and Western literature and a final chapter on the political uses and further potential of the Strong Black Woman image in social justice movements in the U.S. and abroad.
