Gender Bias in the Media

Sexism Sells -- But We're Not Buying It

The Women's Media Center, along with its partners at Media Matters, launched on May 20 "Sexism Sells, But We're Not Buying It," a new video and online petition campaign illustrating the pervasive nature of sexism in the media's coverage.

According to the Women's Media Center,

"While Hillary Clinton's campaign cast a spotlight on the issue of sexism, this isn't a partisan issue: it's about making sure that women's voices are present and powerful in our national dialogue. If you haven't already, please... watch the video. You can also read a statement. about the video from WMC president Carol Jenkins. Then sign on... to join our petition campaign.

Let's send a message to the media:

Sexism Sells, But We're Not Buying It!"
