To do:

Take the Media Pledge of Gender Neutrality

"I promise to adhere to fair journalistic standards that promote accuracy and objectivity in covering political candidates and their issues. I will try to treat all subjects with respect, regardless of gender, and to create an overall media culture in which sexism has no place. This includes not posing questions or using language for one gender that I would not feel is equally applicable to the other. I recognize that sexist language and representation do a disservice to my audiences and the public at large. I pledge to do my part to prevent all instances of sexist coverage of candidates, leaders, and people of all walks of life, and to hold fellow journalists and media outlets accountable to this same standard of conduct."
