Prominent Women Call for Equally Shared Parenting
On May 10, 2013 a group of prominent women unveiled a new organization calling for equally shared parenting as the guiding principle in family law policy and statutes.
Leading Women for Shared Parenting debuted with an impressive list of supporters. From writers, to researchers to legislators and numerous female attorneys, the organization is demonstrating shared parenting is supported across multiple sectors of society.
The group's initial public effort centers on an electronic campaign to endorse a broad policy statement supporting Shared Parenting. LW4SP anticipates thousands of women will show their support for shared parenting by electronically signing the online statement.
Prior to its public launch, 19 women from LW4SP sent a group letter to Florida Governor Rick Scott urging him to sign the bill on his desk containing shared parenting language.
Support the efforts of LW4SP. Urge the women in your life to go to the LW4SP website and endorse the statement. Forward this newsletter to additional women you know and ask them to take action as well.
When our elected officials and courts see men and women acting together on this issue change will come quickly.
