‘Dear Women’ tweets pleading for female voting days before Midterms

During the home stretch before the Nov. 8 election, both Republicans and Democrats used Twitter to win voters.

The phrase “dear women” was trending on Twitter on Friday, as many Democrat activists took to social media to convince female users that choosing blue was “self-care.”

“Dear women, Republicans hate you,” wrote the author Majid Padellan. “This is NOT a joke. Choose blue.”

Kimberly Johnsonan author and women’s rights activist, tweeted: “Dear women, self-care means voting blue.”

Republicans joined the trend, including conservative writers Nick Adamswho told women to “opt out of RED this Tuesday unless you want men to dominate every single woman’s sport.”

Donald Trump Jr. also responded by raising a segment pointed to The view Thursday, where co-host Sunny Hosting likened suburban white women voting against access to abortion to “roaches voting for raid,” Fox News reported.

“Remember that idiots at The view called you “roaches for voting for the raid” because you would have the audacity to vote republicans to bring safety to our cities, law and order, our economy, end school closures, not being 3 years old to decide their gender, etc.,โ€ Trump wrote.

Women’s issues are consistently top priorities for voters in 2022, seeing a sharp surge in interest after the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn state protections on abortion in June.

The Pew Research Center found that abortion as a priority for voters rose nearly 13 points between polls in March and August this year, and data from late October found that 56 percent of voters still named it a top issue stated in this year’s elections.

While Democrats have an advantage this fall over voters concerned about abortion rights, Republicans have attempted to portray themselves as a pro-women’s party on issues like gender identity and school policy. Michigan’s Republican gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon, for example, has carried the message that she will “protect women’s sports” while opposing school policies like gender-neutral bathrooms, Fox 2 reports.

On Thursday, author Courtney Kirchoff tweeted, “Spare me the pleas for ‘dear women’ when you can’t even define what a woman is.”

in one post laterKirchhoff wrote that she voted Republican “across the board” in her early Friday vote.

Other users like Karen Jamesa biologist at the University of Maine, wrote that no matter which political party is speaking, the Dear Ladies trend makes her “feel like I’m being taught.”

“Tweets like this always make me feel like I’m being educated on top of everything else and that it’s women’s sole responsibility to vote these monsters out,” James wrote in an earlier tweet in October that she shared on her feed. In reposted reaction to Friday’s trend.

“It feels manipulative. It would be nice if a tweet like this were aimed at men or just at everyone,” James added.

news week has reached out to Rutgers University’s Center for American Women and Politics for comment.
