Increase Diversity at The New York Times Op-Ed Pages


The quality of public debate—and by extension, the quality of our lives as influenced by that debate in countless, critical ways—is exponentially enhanced by a diversity of voices and perspectives. From October to December 2010, 80% of op-eds in The New York Times were written by men. Join us in encouraging the Times to make sure their next op-ed columnist hire is a person who embodies some of the demographic categories and life experiences most left out of the op-ed pages at present—including women, people of color, LGBTQ folks, people with disabilities etc. It's not just right; it's better for everyone.
