Angry Women Advocates Group Storm Facebook's New York HQ Today With A Petition
Apr 26, 2012 15:26
The advocates at womens' group Ultraviolet are not pleased with Facebook's board of directors, and they're protesting it this afternoon. Among the board are: Mark Zuckerberg, Marc Andreessen, David Sze, Jim Breye, Peter Thiel and a few more. The one thing they have in common? They're not women.
The advocate group describes itself as "a community of women and men, fighting to expand women's rights and combat sexism everwhere - from politics and government to media and pop culture"> At noon today, Ultraviolet is protesting and dropping off a reported 53,000 name petition for more women on the board.
Facebook is driven largely by women who make up 58% of its users and are responsible for 62% of the sharing that happens through Facebook networks.
This spring, Facebook will go public—when it does it will be one of the largest companies in the world. And despite the fact that women are responsible for most of Facebook's revenue and activity there currently is not a single woman on their board.
This is wrong and we're joining a big campaign to get Facebook to fix it. Can you sign this petition?
Do you agree with them? How else would you strive for some equality?
