* 1. The State Presidents' Caucus of the National Organization for Women invites you to complete a survey and asks you to rank the following list of feminist issues in terms of your feminist priorities so that we can share the views of grassroots feminists with the Democratic National Committee as they draft their 2008 National Platform. This will be the Platform that should guide the campaigns of all Democratic candidates for national office and it is essential that the voices of grassroots feminists are heard.

Please rank the list of feminist issues on this survey in order of priority to you,choosing no more then ten priority issues. Please rank your highest priority feminist issue as "number 1", second priority feminist issue as "number 2", etc., through "number 10". If you rank the "Other" category, please briefly describe one additional issue in the comment box provided. Of course all are priorities. We need your responses by no later than Saturday, July 26, 2008 at 9:00 PM Eastern Time.

Thank you for making a difference for all women in the 2008 Elections.
