#AmplifyWOC on the Editorial Page
Women of color make up about 20 percent of the U.S. population, but you’d never know it from reading the nation’s editorial pages.
85 percent of the opinions we hear and read in the media comes from men.
America's editorial boards and editorial columnists are overwhelmingly white and male.
Together, we’re going to change that.
- SIGN the petition calling on U.S. editorial boards and editorial page editors to seek out and publish more op-eds from women of color (WOC) and hire more WOC columnists
- FOLLOW women of color writers & commentators
- TAG woman of color you admire, retweet their opinions & post their work
- IF YOU’RE A WOMAN OF COLOR: Write. Pitch. Have your voice be HEARD. Never done it before? The Op-Ed Project can help you get started.
