Women for Hillary

Posted By on Wed, Oct 17, 2007 at 2:05 PM

The Clinton campaign announces an Arkansas Women for Hillary Council, chaired by Jimmie Lou Fisher. Check the jump for the list of familiar names. Not exactly Republicans.


The Clinton campaign announced today the formation of the Arkansas Women for Hillary Council. The Council is made up of women from across the state who will be active leaders in Arkansas, speaking to their friends, family and associates about this election, and helping to grow the network of women across America supporting Hillary Clinton's campaign.

This announcement is part of the campaign’s week long focus on Women Changing America.  During the week, the campaign is highlighting the decisive role women can play in this election, discussing issues important to women, and celebrating the ways that women are changing America everyday.

“In 35 years as an advocate for women, children and families, I know that women can make a powerful difference,” Hillary said. “Women are changing America and I am so proud to welcome the Arkansas Women for Hillary Council to our campaign. Working together, we will address the issues of concern to women and families, and how we can make the changes America needs.”

Members of the Arkansas Women for Hillary Council will join Hillary for a conference call this week.  They are encouraged to be ambassadors for Hillary by reaching out to their networks on Hillary’s behalf while also educating and empowering others to make history by making Hillary our 44th President.

“I have known Hillary Clinton since 1977, and know she is the kind of leader who will make us here in Arkansas proud.  I believe Senator Clinton is the strongest and most promising candidate for President.  She is the one candidate who can restore respect for America abroad immediately,” said Jimmie Lou Fisher, former Arkansas State Treasurer.

Hillary kicked off the week with an appearance on The View and spoke at the Eleanor Roosevelt Legacy Committee’s Annual Fall Campaign Luncheon in New York. On Tuesday, she traveled to New Hampshire to announce a new policy proposal to help parents balance work and family life. On Wednesday, nearly 1,000 women contributors from 47 states around the country will convene for a women’s summit in support of the Clinton campaign – a full-day event that will raise well over $1 million. And on Thursday, Hillary will discuss the importance of health care for women when she participates in the Presidential Candidate Forums organized by the Federation of American Hospitals and Families USA and hosts a conference call with health care professionals from the American Medical Women’s Association.

The week’s events will underscores why Hillary enjoys such deep support among women voters by emphasizing how her strength and experience make her the candidate best able to deliver change on the issues most important to them.

The members of the Arkansas Women for Hillary Council reflect Hillary’s vast and diverse supporters, spanning all occupations and communities.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
