Women Journalists Use Social Media To Fight Sexist Radio Contest
A radio station’s March Madness-style contest ranks TV news women by their looks and now the journalists are using social media to fight back.
The Arkansas radio station says it has no plans to end its controversial ‘Babe Bracket.’
The tournament-style contest ranks reporters and anchors in the Little Rock-area by their looks and asks listeners to vote on who’s hotter.
The radio station says it’s been doing this for two decades and it’s listeners love it, so what’s the problem?
But the professionals who were unwillingly drafted into the competition took offense.
They started tweeting out their accomplishments with the #morethanababe on Thursday.
Once that hashtag started trending, journalists across the country began tweeting their support.
