This Letter Calling Out “Sexist” 2020 Coverage Demands Women Candidates Get Treated Fairly
The media needs to change how it treats women candidates vying for the presidency in the 2020 election, according to a coalition of women’s rights groups. At least 20 organizations signed a letter calling out “sexist” 2020 coverage of women candidates in the 2020 Democratic primary. Furthermore, the groups laid out three demands they believe will ensure women candidates receive equal coverage and are treated fairly.
Organizations like Ultraviolet Action, Emily’s List, Feminist Majority Foundation, Not Without Black Women, Women’s March, and others highlighted what they believe are big problems with the press coverage of women candidates.
