Women Tell Bill Maher to Apologize for the Misogyny

Women aren't yet walking out of Bill Maher's show, but two women respond to misogynist Bill Maher on the letter-to-the-editor page of the New York Times. It's no wonder Maher defended Limbaugh's misogyny, the lefty comic has never acknowledged his own deep misogyny:

Maher’s Attacks on Women:

Re “Please Stop Apologizing,” by Bill Maher (Op-Ed, March 22):

We’re both women who have worked in Democratic politics and the media for decades and find Bill Maher’s misogynist treatment of women candidates deeply disturbing. . . How can we expect women to run for office when they are essentially told to “lighten up about” and accept misogynist attacks? The Women’s Media Center has found that such attacks on women candidates have a measurable negative effect on how voters view them.

Our message to Mr. Maher and his ilk is: Please start apologizing.

'Bill Maher’s misogynist treatment of women is deeply disturbing.'
