What happened to Delegate Jennifer Barton Boysko​, Delegate Kaye Kory​, & Delegate Debra Rodman​'s bills last Friday is horrible. Important legislation cannot just be swept under the rug because legislators don't like it.

THIS is NOT how DEMOCRACY works! Virginian women are angry and we are here to stay!
