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?

Rush Limbaugh must go!

Rush Limbaugh must go!

On his popular talk radio show, Rush Limbaugh took to the airwaves to proclaim that Florida State University football star and accused rapist Jameis Winston should "expect a standing ovation" for standing up on a campus table and shouting "F*ck her right in the p*ssy!" to passersby. Enough is enough. No legitimate brand should bankroll Limbaugh's disgusting mockery of rape and face no consequences. Will you tell advertisers like Holiday Inn and ProActiv to drop the Rush Limbaugh show immediately?

Judge Fuller must resign

Judge Fuller must resign

Federal Judge Mark Fuller was arrested for domestic violence last month after his wife called 911 during the attack. But rather than face trial, Fuller agreed to an intervention program. He will spend no time behind bars--he's set to return to the bench--and his record will be expunged. If we all call for his resignation now, the public outcry will force him out of the judgeship. Will you add your name?
