#AskHerMore Transformed the Red Carpet and Last Night It Took on the Democratic Debate

From history, we know media coverage and bias play a huge role in who is elected. That's why we expanded the #AskHerMore campaign to the Presidential election, starting with last night's Democratic Debate. Joined by millions worldwide, we are calling out sexist reporting and suggesting ways to re-focus on women’s achievements using the hashtag #AskHerMore. Together, we can challenge and overcome limiting stereotypes in our media, our politics, and beyond for a better society for all.
