ACTION: CHALLENGE MEDIA TO STOP FRAMING WOMEN’S AND GIRLS’ RIGHTS AS NEGATIVE

THE ISSUE: 

A significant victory! Idaho protects women and girl’s rights by passing the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act into law—yet the media frames this as negative. And the ACLU is threatening to sue.

The media is undermining women’s and girls’ civil rights. Since when did women’s and girls’ rights become a bad thing? Why is discrimination against women suddenly okay? Who wins when female athletes are denied a level playing field?

We keep saying follow the money.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Tweet and challenge media on their framing of legislation of women’s and girls’ civil rights as negative.
