Resign for outrageous comments against women

This petition had 52 supporters

Hateful language against women is unacceptable, no matter who says it.

On March 26, 2012, Rep. Babette Josephs repeatedly said at a political rally that the female colleagues that opposed her position on a legislative issue related to women's health were "men with breasts".

"What is wrong with these women? What are they thinking about? Are they women? Or are they men with breasts." - Josephs

Rep. Josephs implied that these women were unable to think for themselves - and that if they disagreed with her position, that they were not women at all.

Rep. Josephs has refused to apologize to her fellow representatives or recant her remarks, and as such has demonstrated that she is out of touch with Pennsylvanians who demand civility and respect for women in all levels of politics.

Please join the many citizens who are demanding that Rep. Babette Josephs resign from her position for her intolerant, disrespectful, and outrageous comments against women.
