Lifetime Networks has announced the launch of the Every Woman Counts bus tour to engage women in the political process this election season and beyond. At each tour stop, women will be able to upload videos to Lifetime’s YouTube(TM) Channel (http://www.youtube.com/lifetime) declaring what they would do if they were president, highlighting the issues most important to them this historic presidential election year. The tour will wind across the country making 14 stops in 11 markets, including Denver and Minneapolis/Saint Paul for the Democratic and Republican National Conventions, where Lifetime will host a series of high-profile Every Woman Counts events.  In addition, at each stop, women can register to vote at myLifetime.com, watch Lifetime Every Woman Counts PSAs and “If I were president … ” vignettes from celebrities such as Reba McIntyre, Queen Latifah, Jewel, and many more. Highlights from Lifetime programming, including hit series “Army Wives,” and original broadband series will also be shown.  “Lifetime and our partners are dedicated to sparking a national dialogue among women and equipping them with the tools necessary to engage them in politics,” said Meredith Wagner, executive vice president, public affairs. “The bus tour was created to connect with women in their hometowns on the issues that matter most to them and to inspire them to register and vote. Thirty-five million eligible women did not vote in the 2004 presidential election, and we are committed to changing this statistic as part of our Every Woman Counts campaign,” she added.
