Justice for Tondalo Hall

Justice for Tondalo Hall

Her partner severely beat her and her children--but she's the one serving 30 years in prison. Tondalo Hall, a 30-year old mother from Oklahoma, is serving a sentence 15 times that of the man who abused her--for "failing to protect" her children from him. It's a cruel failure of the justice system that all too often punishes survivors of domestic violence. Right now, we have a chance to make it right--but only for a few days. Can you sign the petition?

Tell President Obama: Take a stand for women against the Republican Congress

Tell President Obama: Take a stand for women against the Republican Congress

On Election Day, extremist Republicans and their anti-woman ideas took control of both houses of Congress. They are led by politicians who pledged to enact sweeping abortion bans, take away women's right to birth control coverage, and do away with equal pay legislation. There's one bold response we need, and thousands are already demanding it. President Obama has been a champion for women, but now we really need him to know that we're counting on him to block extremist attempts to roll back women's rights. Can you join the call?

Stop the sexual assault of women at Karnes!

Stop the sexual assault of women at Karnes!

Countless women have been raped at a for-profit detention center in Texas. The Department of Homeland Security's Office of Civil Rights has the power to investigate and hold this facility accountable. Can you join Human Rights First, the University of Texas Law School, and the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund in calling for a full investigation?

Tell Hulu: Don't censor pro-choice voices

Tell Hulu: Don't censor pro-choice voices

Hulu, the online video streaming service with millions of viewers, just rejected an ad to educate voters in Colorado about a dangerous anti-choice amendment on the ballot--despite the fact that it is running ads from pro-life candidates. According to Hulu, the ad is "political." But anti-choice candidates’ ads aren’t? Totally ludicrous. This is censorship of women's rights, plain and simple--and we’ve got to speak up now to stop it.

Tell Microsoft: "Karma" won't fix sexism. Fire Satya Nadella.

Tell Microsoft: "Karma" won't fix sexism. Fire Satya Nadella.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told a room full of women—at a conference dedicated to advancing women in the male-dominated tech industry no less—not to ask for a raise. He said “karma” and "trusting the system” will ensure that they are paid fairly. WHAT!?! That's rich coming from a man who will be making $18 MILLION this year. Today, the average woman makes 78 cents for every dollar a man earns across all industries. This isn’t a joke—it's a real burden families deal with every day. Will you demand Microsoft fire CEO Satya Nadella for his comments about the fact that women earn less?

The dangerous lies Pandora radio is airing

The dangerous lies Pandora radio is airing

Pandora radio, a popular and free streaming service with over 77 million listeners each month, is running ads that prey on pregnant women, and it needs to stop. These deceptive ads implore listeners with an unplanned pregnancy to call 1-844-UCHOOSE--an anti-choice hotline that tells women they can get cancer from abortion and other dangerous lies. These women, who are at their most vulnerable, need real medical care, not anti-science myths. After hearing from UltraViolet members earlier this year, organizations like Google and Yahoo dropped similar deceptive ads. Together, we can make sure Pandora is next. Can you sign the petition?
