The DNC will require female moderators at every 2020 presidential debate

Women–especially Black women–are voting, organizing, and running for office in record numbers, and it’s time that we ask the debate questions. After weeks of behind-the-scenes pressure from UltraViolet Action members and allies, the Democratic National Committee announced in May 2019 that it will require female moderators at every 2020 presidential debate.

UltraViolet Action asked 2020 Democratic presidential candidates to sign an #AskForWomen pledge to demand that every DNC debate have at least one woman moderator. Shortly after the pledge secured the support of a number of prominent candidates, the DNC made its groundbreaking announcement. Learn more about UltraViolet Action’s work to address sexism in the 2020 election.
