Unfair & UnbalancedS

The Women's Media Center has launched "Sexism Sells, But We're Not Buying It," a video and online petition campaign. At issue: The pervasive sexism in political coverage. "While Hillary Clinton's campaign has 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," states the organization. Watching all of the sexist clips from "news" shows compiled in one video is nauseating, and the focus on looks, cosmetics, cleavage and terms like "nagging voice" and "the Wicked Witch of The West" is extremely infuriating. At least there's this quote: "We ask justice, we ask equality, we ask that all the civil and political rights that belong to citizens of the United States be guaranteed to us and our daughters forever." That's Susan B. Anthony, who died in 1906. (Click the picture to see embedded video.) [Women's Media Center]
