Letter to
Q104 Halifax "the Male is in the Czech" Mail Order Bride contest
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Q104 Halifax.

----------------
End the "Czech" Contest NOW.

Q104 is currently holding a contest called "The Male is in the Czech" in which the station offers a listener the chance to "win a Mail-Order Bride from the Mighty Q!!". This contest is scheduled to close on INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY.

The rights and dignity of all women, is severely impacted from the message of this contest. When one of the most popular radio stations in HRM promotes the commodification and objectification of women, it is BLATANT SEXISM. It reasserts and normalizes the commonly held sexism in our society and WE WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS.

WE ARE CALLING FOR Q104 TO PULL THIS CONTEST IMMEDIATELY, ISSUE AN APOLOGY AND DONATE THE CONTEST MONEY TO A LOCAL WOMEN'S ORGANIZATION.

Please sign the petition, contact your government representatives, and spread the word!
