• Pull Rush's Misogyny From Portland's Airwaves
    Rush Limbaugh's anti-woman rants have gone so far that it is unacceptable for WGAN to profit from filling Maine's airwaves with his hate and misogyny. Limbaugh called a law student who testified on behalf of insurance coverage for contraceptives a "slut" and a "prostitute" and publicly suggested that she post videos of herself having sex on the Internet. If Rush were using such blatant and unabashed slurs about a racial or ethnic group, his repulsive vitriol would never be broadcast. We request that WGAN, which currently has one female host and 15 male hosts, show its support for the women of Maine by pulling Limbaugh's show from the airwaves effective immediately--and replacing his noon to 3 pm radio show with one that has a woman host.

  • Stop Fallin's War on Women and Religion!
    Oklahoma is just one of many conservative states attacking Women's Rights in the name of religious justice. Most recent is the attempt at defining the fertilized human egg as a person, which would render some forms of contraception as well as abortion illegal. This amounts to little more than the establishment of Christian Law in Oklahoma, which should be just as swiftly rejected as Oklahoma"s 2010 attempt at "preventing" Islamic Sharia Law from ever being enforced or protected in Oklahoma. Using religion to advance the War on Women's Rights is unethical and unconstitutional. Sign this petition to stop Mary Fallin's War on Women's Rights and protect the religious freedoms of all Oklahomans.

  • Tell Mitt Romney to Disavow Ted Nugent's Support
    On Friday, March 2nd, controversial musician Ted Nugent, a proud misogynist with a history of inflammatory comments about women, announced his support for Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney via Twitter: @TedNugent: "after a long heart&soul conversation with MittRomney today I concluded this good man will properly represent we the people & I endorsed him". Here are just a few of Nugent's disgusting utterances about women: (On Hillary Clinton) "You probably can't use the term 'toxic c--' in your magazine, but that's what she is. Her very existence insults the spirit of individualism in this country. This bitch is nothing but a two-bit whore for Fidel Castro." "And if you're a woman who feels that his lyrics to ditties such as the immortal 'Wang Dang Sweet Poontang' are sexist, Nugent says, 'Fuck you and go to a Garth Brooks show. Kiss my dog's dead, diseased, rotting ass. If you don't have a sense of humor, you're not allowed in Ted's world. I don't objectify women. I'd like to think that I'm optimizing their hardware.'" Feminists "are just women who aren't getting it often enough." [St. Petersburg Times, 3/12/99] "...I met a couple of guys in line yesterday and they say write something to my girlfriend, she won't let me go hunting. I wrote her something, I wrote Drop dead bitch. What good is she, trade her in, get a Dalmatian, who needs her, the wench." The Romney campaign seems to have actively sought Nugent's endorsement and are boasting about it. Romney's son Tagg -- who regularly represents his father's campaign as a surrogate -- tweeted: @tromney: "Ted Nugent endorsed my Dad today. Ted Nugent? How cool is that?! He joins Kid Rock as great Detroit musicians on team Mitt!" This is simply unacceptable. Speak out on behalf of women everywhere and tell Mitt Romney to disavow Nugent's support.

  • Mothers against Rush Limbaugh
    Rush Limbaugh and his continued vitriol against women has got to stop. As a 62 yr old mother of three successful daughters, I remain baffled as to why this man and his misogynistic tirades have been allowed to be heard. Words and actions that demean, degrade and disrespect women must never be tolerated. Please join my petition to rebuke these messages and all they represent.

  • Force Rush to Apologize
    Rush Limbaugh was wrong to paint Sandran Fluke as a "slut" on national radio, February 29, 2012. The outrage was instantaneous; bit instead of apologizing the next day, he stated that if Sandra wanted other people to pay for her birth control, she should be willing to tape her sexual interactions and post them on the internet. This is the most disgusting, vile form of sexism he could possibly publicize. We must let the CEO of Clear Channel know that this is not ok. His actions are slanderous and wrong. Rush Limbaugh needs to apologize immediately!

  • Boycott any sponsor of Rush Limbaugh and Clear Channel Communications
    Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown University law student, a slut and a prostitute for advocating for women to have access to contraception, not just for birth control, but also for medical reasons. This war on women has to stop. As always, companies need to know that women have financial power and we will not support this war on women brought on by the GOP and its supporters during this election cycle.
