Daily Caller Pushes Sexist "Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street" Pics

| October 24, 2011

Betsi Fores of The Daily Caller seems to understand that Steven Greenstreet’s Tumblr “Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street,” which was passed around the internet earlier this week, is most definitely “creepy.”  Jill Fillipovic at Feministe has a good rundown on the problems with Greenstreet and his personal Twitter harassment of her for calling him out on his sexism.  But in a stunning move, after condemning Greenstreet, Fores then ranks her favorite photos in a slideshow for The Daily Caller.

Julie Burton, president and CEO of the Women’s Media Center said today:

“Is it too much to ask the Daily Caller to feature women leaders, rather than to objectify women as ornaments?  How about:  Here are the top 10 women leaders speaking at Occupy Wall Street?"

In terms of netiquette, stealing another person’s photos is bad form Fores, but in terms of sexism this ranks at the top of the Women’s Media Center’s lists.
