Introducing the New GenderAvenger Series

The GenderAvenger community has always been passionate, committed, and unafraid to rustle a few feathers.

Our Action Alerts uncover new community-generated actions every week, and people are using the GA Tally to call out more events than ever. A few especially dedicated Avengers, though, have made it their mission to zero in on a particular cause, and now we’re making it easier for you to follow them.

Avenger Jess Esch has been keeping monthly tabs on gender in The New Yorker since 2013. Avenger Kathleen Schatzberg has been emailing the Writer’s Almanac weekly to point out their pathetic (and sometimes nonexistent) gender balance. Avenger Amy Pritchard has taken it upon herself to call out the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) in public and demand that they do a better job of including women. And, of course, we at GenderAvenger joined with Rutgers University’s Center for American Women and Politics and the Women’s Media Center for the Who Talks? project to count appearances by women analysts during the 2016 presidential campaign.

These Avengers have taken the GenderAvenger mission and made it their own, applying pressure to organizations they care about deeply and refusing to stop until they see change.

We created the GenderAvenger Series to make it easy for you to follow their progress and join in on their fight.

The GenderAvenger Series allows you to find recurring actions, meet the Avengers behind them, and help amplify their findings. We will keep you updated as the GenderAvenger Series grows so you never miss a chance to join in on the latest fellow Avenger’s crusade.

We know you all have things you’re passionate about, things in your day-to-day lives that bring out your inner GenderAvenger. Are you following a particular organization?  Let us know, and as you create more tallies we’ll add you to the GenderAvenger Series so that the GenderAvenger community can amplify your voice, too.

Let’s get out there and make women’s voices count.
