Ask A Woman What She Thinks!

Men Rule Media Coverage on Women’s News,” Abigail Pesta’s recent Daily Beast article, makes clear that men still control the news narrative at all levels.  The data presented is taken from Silenced: Gender Gap in the 2012 Election Coverage, a six-month study detailing researchers’ troubling findings after tracking thousands of print articles and TV segments, logging almost 51,000 quotes. 

 Here’s what I think…

And a picture is worth a thousand words…

What do you think?

  1. Thanks for staying in the fight, Ani. It is good to know there are some women involved still. The majority of women, however, would agree with the cultural and enforced belief that women don’t think, so why ask them?

    If they had an opinion, it would be what their husband or father thinks anyway. A thinking woman is an abomination – “just ask the man who [thinks he] ownes one”.

  2. Great video Anita. They don’t ask women for their opinion because they won’t like the answer. Women might want actual fair rights and that would be disruptive in a representative democracy. If women try to give their opinion, the best thing to do is to shut them up immediately and prevent them from saying anything else about anything else. It worked so well in Michigan–except for this response from the people of Michigan:

  3. Looks like another oppressivelly hot day. Yesterday my dog wilted. But my tomatoes are loving it. Had to water forever last night, though. It was a bone dry hot hot day.

    I was thinking it’s a good thing I don’t have any kids. I cancelled my dog’s check up appointment because I don’t want to stress her with shots in this heat. Yeah, I know. I know….

  4. POOR BABY needlenose——my davey doesn’t have half of needlenose’s hair, and she hates the heat too—-she didn’t eat till
    this morning after a day and a half of no food (and very little ball playing)——-she just didn’t want it–the temps are going to drop tomorrow and stay there for a couple of weeks——Davey will want her upp-comence once it gets cooler

  5. ANI: Great POST——–sad as it is

  6. LOL – same heat here Uppity- so hot yesterday the kittehs basically just parked in the coolest spot they could find.
    Something got in to one of the raised beds last night and crushed a half row of beans. sigh. Ducks or deer? Tomatoes undamaged thanks be!

  7. Mom, if the beans aren’t eaten, sounds like something rested on the beans.

    I must say this year’s home crops are not only looking really good but are yielding way ahead.

    Also, I have so much lettuce, I almost wish for a rabbit. lol.

    The HERBs are magnificent!

  8. PMM – So far my raised beds are doing OK but I have a visitor unknown that came in the night and left a slice of hard stale cheese in front of the kitchen door.

  9. Michelina, I do notice that the cats eat much less when it’s very warm out for some reason.

  10. I think it’s time for an Adirondack trip. For the dog, of course. We used a friend’s place a few times and there’s this neighbor that gives her whole fishes. This disgusts me but it’s lobster to her.

  11. Great post, Anita.

    Shelli Yoder is running for Congress in Indiana’s 9th District. I am very excited about her candidacy. If she wins, Yoder will be the first woman ever to represent our district. Check out what she thinks!

  12. Beata, she can win if the WOMEN are SMART enough to rally around her, REGARDLESS of her party.

  13. Yay Anita! Great post and video! Remember when Hillary was in Africa I think, and that guy asked her a question, but it was translated wrong and she thought he asked what her HUSBAND thought about something? Hillary gave a curt and forceful response (which of course had everyone in a tizzy…ZOMG!! She lost it!!!). But that was because, among other reasons, she knew all too well that a woman’s opinion, especially in that country, was of no value.

  14. IMUST: I remember that all too well, plus everything else!!

  15. I have a post up Cockroach Award. It was timely, so sorry I did this Ani!

  16. uw: WE CAN COME BACK & FORTH-IT SHOULD BE OK-I KNOW I AM

  17. didn’t know I had caps lock on

  18. No worries, Uppity – this is also up at my place so you can bump this back to tomorrow or over the wkeend if you need something!

    Thanks for posting!
