This political campaign season has brought it to my attention that sexism is alive and well in America. Instead of sitting around with my blood boiling, what can I do

It's been years since I've taken much of an interest in politics, but the current US election season is really making me crazy. As a card-carrying member of the Liberal Elite I had sort of forgotten how rampant straight-up sexism and anti-woman sentiment is in this country. Although other political issues do have the potential to rile me up, this is the one that routinely leaves me furious and near tears. I'd like to put some of this negative emotional energy to good use.
So my question is, what are the most effective things I could do to help protect women's rights, broadly construed?
I live in such a blue city that I suspect volunteering with a campaign here wouldn't have much of an impact. I'm already a regular monthly Planned Parenthood donor. As a grad student I don't have huge amounts of free time or spare money on my hands, but I want to do something.
