Feminists Won’t Take Sexism Lying Down

Yisroel Pensack emails these highlights from the New York Times:

Both the National Organization for Women and Emily’s List, which backs female candidates who support abortion rights, are generating e-mail campaigns to the cable channels when they see sexism. The networks have usually issued on-air apologies.

"We’re certainly not going to take this lying down," said Ellen Malcolm, the president of Emily’s List. She said her hope was for a national discussion to focus on "what is fair in the new political world of Internet, cable and traditional news coverage."

NOW is starting a campaign to highlight its "Media Hall of Shame," an online project in which it points to examples of sexist language.
