Demand that Ka Leo Apologize for Objectifying Women

Recently, Ka Leo printed a “swimsuit issue” featuring women in bathing suits.

(http://www.kaleo.org/features/spring-swim-1.2514457 )

On behalf of the National Organization for Women at UH Mānoa (NOW), we demand that Ka Leo apologize for printing an issue that contributes to the objectification and degradation of women. Ka Leo should provide an example to future journalists and marketing executives by showing how media can be responsible and accountable for their portrayals of women. We view this as an opportunity for Ka Leo to take responsibility and facilitate social dialogue about these issues.
