UPDATE November 2013: Kathleen Murphy lost her election for State Delegate by 429 votes.
Virginia, District 34
Virginia has been one of the nation’s busiest battlefronts in the “War on Women,” thanks to the efforts of Governor Bob “Vaginal Ultrasound” McDonnell and the state’s merry band of Republican legislators. Electing progressive, pro-choice Democrats like Kathleen Murphy will help put sanity back into the legislature.
Kathleen helped found Salute Our Services, which helps connect service members deployed overseas to their families and Kids Serve Too, an organization to honor and support children in military families. Kathleen has played a critical role in Women’s Campaign International, an organization dedicated to teaching women in developing countries how to become political leaders, and now serves on their advisory board. She was a founding member of the Congressional Wives Task Force, an advocacy group that focused on nutrition labeling and violence in children’s television.
