ASK ME FIRST


 

We Are Women...

We are moms, daughters, students, athletes, survivors and businesswomen who believe our voices matter.

There’s a growing trend among our nation’s politicians to allow men to enter women’s spaces — public bathrooms, showers, locker rooms. As if this weren’t absurd enough, none of these politicians seems interested in talking with us — the women who will be most impacted by these rules—to learn how we feel about it.

We are standing together to share our stories with you. Together we say, Ask Me First. We’ll tell you why these efforts are anti-woman, how they directly harm each of us, and why politicians should never consider bringing them forward.

Our Opinion Matters.

As we all consider the policy changes we're seeing concerning privacy and safety in restrooms and locker rooms, we think there are certain voices that are being ignored -- perhaps on purpose. 

 

Tanner is a star high school runner in Alaska. She wants every female athlete to be treated fairly. This is her story.

 

How wrong does something have to be in order to be opposed by a Christian conservative organization and a self-described radical feminist group? Kara Dansky, Board Chair of Women's Liberation Front, known as WoLF, explains why the "bathroom agenda" is a danger to women and girls.

 

They are moms and good friends.

They managed to get their children into a highly respected school, one that valued the input of parents. But after a gender-confused student requested special accommodation, the activists began to show up at meetings. Through a well-orchestrated effort, their voices drowned out the privacy and safety concerns of parents at the school.

Jamie and Emily want you to benefit from their experiences.

 

We want you to hear from Kate. Her opinion matters. As we all consider the policy changes we're seeing concerning privacy in restrooms and locker rooms, we think there are certain voices being ignored -- perhaps on purpose. We encourage you to share Kate's story to offer people a different perspective on this issue.

Ask Me First touches on the concerns of women all over the world. In New Zealand, Auckland University of Technology dubbed 165 restrooms as "All-Gender toilets" - a decision that a group of current students call 'irresponsible', 'backward', culturally insensitive and unsafe.


There are many stories that illustrate why women need to be heard.

What can one person do? A lot!

When women contact their elected officials and respectfully ask them to consider all sides of the issue before making a decision, it often change things. The bathroom issue is especially dangerous, because it puts so many people at risk.

You can send a short email to your local, state and federal officials urging them to “Ask Me First.” We’ve made it easy through our Action Center.
