Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon will be in Sarasota today to help get women to re-elect President Barack Obama.
Nixon will appear at the Obama For America office at 305 Gillespie Ave., off of Fruitville Road at 12:30 p.m., to talk about women's issues, according to the Sarasota County Democratic Club. The event is free and open to the public.
"President Obama has fought for women's rights and women's health — from cracking down on pay discrimination, to making sure women can get birth control and preventive care with no copay or deductible. This ongoing struggle to give women control over their own lives and equal opportunities for success is central to this election," said Rita Ferrandino, chairwoman of the Sarasota County Democratic Party.
"I urge all women concerned about these issues to attend this event," said Ferrandino.
Attendees can RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
She is also expected to appear in St. Petersburg and Safety Harbor for similar events.
Nixon has three children and is currently married to Christine Marinoni. The actress has also survived breast cancer and is active with the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Nixon is set to play poet Emily Dickenson in A Quiet Passion, which is due out in 2013, according to Internet Movie Database.
