Media Matters Looks at Sunday Talkshow Interview Subjects in February by Gender

| February 28, 2012

In a piece published today in Media Matters, Eric Boehlert looks at the numbers of Sunday talkshow interview subjects by gender in the month of February of this year. 

February, as Boehlert points out, was the month "when the issues of birth control and women's access to health care flared up and became major topics of debate on the presidential campaign trail and in Washington."

The numbers? 52 men, 4 women. 

Boehlert quotes WMC's own Communications Manager Rachel Larris, who asserted, "I can't imagine what other month could have needed more feminine voices...The shows are a still a boys club."
