Plenty of outlets have discussed the inappropriateness of taking race into consideration when choosing our next president, as well as how the candidates are covered by the media. Many haven’t quite had the same qualms about playing the gender card.
In today’s Washington Post, Marie Cocco in her article Misogyny I Won’t Miss, gives a round-up of the more blatant examples of gender bias in the press, some that she feels even border on outright hatred. of women.
The worst example of all? Surprisingly, it’s not the Hillary nutcracker.
Cocco feels the worst of all has been the virtual silence of the DNC and the Democratic leadership to the running anti-woman commentary against Hillary Clinton. Next time guys, step up and speak out against all forms of bias, OK?
I’m also hanging out with the Mommybloggers today talking about whether my Obama friends will still like me in the morning! Thanks for the invite, Jenn!
