Rush Limbaugh must go!

Rush Limbaugh must go!

On his popular talk radio show, Rush Limbaugh took to the airwaves to proclaim that Florida State University football star and accused rapist Jameis Winston should "expect a standing ovation" for standing up on a campus table and shouting "F*ck her right in the p*ssy!" to passersby. Enough is enough. No legitimate brand should bankroll Limbaugh's disgusting mockery of rape and face no consequences. Will you tell advertisers like Holiday Inn and ProActiv to drop the Rush Limbaugh show immediately?

Judge Fuller must resign

Judge Fuller must resign

Federal Judge Mark Fuller was arrested for domestic violence last month after his wife called 911 during the attack. But rather than face trial, Fuller agreed to an intervention program. He will spend no time behind bars--he's set to return to the bench--and his record will be expunged. If we all call for his resignation now, the public outcry will force him out of the judgeship. Will you add your name?

Sexism and sexual harassment in Congress

Sexism and sexual harassment in Congress

"Don't lose too much weight now. I like my girls chubby." That's what one Member of Congress said to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand--while squeezing her waist. In interviews this week she revealed even more sexist comments and attitudes she's endured from her male colleagues. We need to speak up now, and tell our U.S. Senators and Representatives that we expect them to leave the sexism and sexual harrassment behind.

Tell the Senate: Pass the bill to reverse Supreme Court's birth control ruling

Tell the Senate: Pass the bill to reverse Supreme Court's birth control ruling

June's Supreme Court decision gutting access to birth control was devastating -- but the good news is that something can be done. The Not My Bosses' Business Bill was just introduced in Congress to reverse the Supreme Court's decision gutting women's right to birth control coverage -- and it has HUGE momentum. If we shine a spotlight on this bill and bring it to a vote, we'll know which members of Congress support affordable access to birth control -- and which side with 5 men on the Supreme Court.

Tell The Washington Post: Fire George Will

Tell The Washington Post: Fire George Will

The Washington Post published an opinion piece mocking sexual assault survivors and saying that women want to be raped. The author, conservative columnist George Will, goes so far as to write that colleges are making "victimhood a coveted status" by taking public steps to curb sexual assaults on campus. He even implies that non-consensual sex is not rape, when in fact it's the very definition of rape! Tell The Washington Post: Rape is real. No one wants to be a victim. Fire George Will.
