NAME IT CHANGE IT Where Voters Saw Most Sexist Treatment of Women Candidates in Media

Name It. Change It. is a non-partisan project of She Should Run and Women’s Media Center.

We are founded with the support of Politcal Parity, the Embrey Foundation, and the Barbara Lee Family Foundation. Together, we work to end sexist and misogynistic coverage of women candidates by all members of the press—from bloggers to radio hosts to television pundits.


Widespread sexism in the media is one of the top problems facing women. A highly toxic media environment persists for women candidates, often negatively affecting their campaigns. The ever-changing media landscape creates an unmonitored echo chamber, often allowing damaging comments to exist without accountability.

We must erase the pervasiveness of sexism against all women candidates — irrespective of political party or level of office — across all media platforms in order to position women to achieve equality in public office. We will not stand by when media damage women’s political futures with misogynistic remarks. When you attack one woman, you attack all women.    Visit our website:  Name It Change It – Women’s Media Center
