(CNN) - The Concerned Women for America conservative group on Tuesday announced what they hope to be a $1 million voter identification, registration, and turnout effort targeting women.
The group said the effort, She Votes, would be focused in 23 states - including the battlegrounds of Florida, Iowa, Ohio, and Virginia - in which the CWA has operations.

The effort is also targeting voters in Michigan, which the CNN electoral map predicts is trending in President Barack Obama's favor, and Missouri and North Carolina, which leans towards GOP candidate Mitt Romney.
"We will light a 'grassfire' amongst our constituents to reach women, families, and cultural leaders," CWA president Penny Nance said in statement. "This is a critical election year, and the time is now for women to stand up and let their voices be heard."
The political action committee associated with the group both received and spent approximately $24,000 in the first quarter of this year.

better check those registers....you know how many illegals, dead people, etc those Republicans like to sign up
Excellent!! Get out that conservative vote because the country's future lies in the balance. Every vote is important.
maybe they could tell why any female would vote against an Equal pay for Women's bill or a Violence against Women's bill. Seeing as I'm not a woman nor a right winger I just don't get it and perhaps they can explain it to me.
Good luck with that ,I wonder if the woman in the picture is making the same as her male counterpart, thank the Gop bafoon party if your not!!!!!
I have no respect for women who would consider giving up on women's rights. They certainly don't represent the majority of American women. We want equal pay for equal jobs; we don't want government to control our reproductive lives, we also want to be able to purchase healthcare for all family members. A vote for the GOP flies in the face of all that. Go Obama!
bunch of freaking hypocrites, well, they are CONServatives
"This is a critical election year, and the time is now for women to stand up and let their voices be heard."
Don't worry, you'll hear from them. But you won't like to hear what they have to say.
the repubs think there can just woo the women of this country after what policies they are pushing, they have. another thing coming.
Conservative groups have been targeting women for years. They have targeted their salaries, by supporting wage inequality; their bodies, by limiting access to birth control and abortions (which are still legal); to healthcare, by permitting unequal coverage by healthcare insurance providers, and by supporting overturning the ACA; their rights, by passing laws in violation of the Voting Rights Act; and on and on.
I would love for any conservative woman to tell us why they support the GOP? What has that party done for you?
Hey there little red riding hood, you sure are looking good...... Now vote how we tell you too... or else.
Obama will win but Republicans will steal the election and if it goes to the Supreme Court Justices, who probably will vote down Obamacare, don't expect a different outcome.
It is the Republicans policeis that will make sure women do not vote for their party no matter how much they try to reach out to women.
Go ahead, sign them up. Have to make up for all of those being purged from the lists in Florida. Just remember,
these woman may shake their heads in agreement like all good little stepford wives, but when they get in the
voting booth they know their vote is secret.
How many women have had sons or daughters die in the last decade because of a war started for a still undefined reason? Then to have Romney spouting off foreign policy that would lead us straight into other military conflicts sending more children to die. There is honor in service and our leaders need to be willing to send their own children to Die....before sending anyone else's....Romney is much to cavalier about war. Women must see this as a big reason to think twice about supporting this kind of politics.
Glad I am not a woman in this GOP view of "Amercia".
Votes against violence against women and the Ledbetter equal pay act?
One would think the only women subscribing to those "rights" would be too pregnant or too busy to vote!
Well the good thing is if you are not an Upper Class Rep Woman you do not have to worry about
these people contacting you. They do not know the rest exist.
That is truly something to be thankful for.
Gop OS doomed in Nov ,thanks freedomworks and the rest of teaparty morons and Dick armey!!!
Everywhere you look, Republican men are leading an all out assault on American women.These conservatives are really something, aren't they? They are all in favor of the unborn, they will do anything for the unborn, but once you're born, you're on your own! Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that they don't want to know about you, they don't want to hear from you Oh yes and "let a baby be born" to a mother who cannot care for it or someone who does not want it and then whose responsibility is it? YoursThe conservative position SHOULD be to cover birth control so as to lower abortion rates.
I'm a woman, live in iowa, own my own business, I'm a registered Republican... Voting a Straight Democratic Ticket!
There are more women business owners now than 4 years ago and women need to hear from someone that understands business, is not against business, understands the laws,accounting of business, the day-to-day running of a buisness, understands that it is businesses/corporations from the smallest deli, cupcake makers, green products, coffee stand, lunch truck to giants like Apple, Sony, Starbucks that create the larger number of jobs in our country and is not bad mouthing business owners encouraging people to think that business owners are rich, selfish people and Obama unfortunately does not meet this requirement. Obama is anti-business, pro-government jobs.
Anyone who says Republicans are the ones with any issues against women's rights needs to consider that Obama has been negotiating with the Taliban and they pretty much get Afghanistan back in 2014. Sorry, Ladies. Mullah Omar is back.
Women voting for the GOP?
Yep, they will save that zygote you are carrying, but when it is born it becomes part of a "litter" from a "welfare queen" just to gain another government check.
All you wanna-be men women out there in the Dimo party don't hold a candle to the REAL women of the Republican Party!
MyViews nice grammar, it takes 5 lines for one sentence.
Small business owners will not see any help in the way of GOP's, they won't pass a jobs bill. Romney is more in favor of big business, corporations if you will. All corporations are recording more record profits this year than more in the last 8 years. Those fat cats are sitting on their money, not hiring but rather laying off people. And that is Romneys calling card. Bain at its best.
