What Would You Ask Melissa McCarthy At The Golden Globes?

Happy New Year! One of our 2016 resolutions is to continue to challenge and overcome sexism in Hollywood, politics, sports, and beyond. In 2015, our trending #AskHerMore hashtag transformed red carpet culture and encouraged reporters to ask women substantive questions that valued them as human beings. Yet sexism is still rampant in the media.

That’s why we’re excited to start the year off right by live tweeting the Golden Globes this Sunday, January 10th at 6pm. Join us and help make sure reporters #AskHerMore. Together, we can build a world free from gender stereotypes.

“The most awkward moment of the Miss Universe pageant…wasn’t host Steve Harvey naming the wrong winner on live television – it’s that…a pageant still exists that parades women around in bikinis for the honor of winning a sash and tiara. That’s the true embarrassment.” – Jessica Valenti, The Guardian
