Sign the GenderAvenger Petition for Morning Joe to Bring More Women to the Table
Dear Mika and Joe,
Where are the women? Over a four-day twelve-hour period when presidential politics was the most discussed panel topic on Morning Joe, you featured a total of two women commentators. On two of those days, not one woman was included in the dialog. In 2008, the last time there was a contested primary for both parties’ nomination, 57% of New Hampshire primary voters were women, yet on the day you spent there, you chose only men to discuss the presidential race.
Women’s voices belong in the discussion — from economics, national security, and health care to polls and more.
In the last two general elections, women represented 53% of the vote, yet you have rendered them invisible among your campaign analysts.
Bring women to the table. The conversation is richer, the debate is more interesting, and the show is more appealing when all voices are heard.
We will be watching… and counting.
