Republican presidential candidate has #bindersfullofwomen as the twitter trend puts it stashed away somewhere and it was a women Katherine Fenton, the fourth uncommitted voter to raise a question at Tuesday night’s town hall-style presidential debate that sparked the latest social media fire of the election season. Binders Full of Women, how did the governor fix his mouth to say something as strange as that and which may have outdone his big bird remark.
In response to Fenton’s query about what each candidate would do to rectify inequalities in the workplace, “specifically regarding females making only 72 percent of what their male counterparts earn,” Gov. Mitt Romney, who replied after President Obama, recalled his success in increasing gender diversity in his Massachusetts cabinet.
“We took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet,” Romney said. “I went to a number of women’s groups and said, ‘Can you help us find folks,’ and they brought us whole binders full of women.”
This is perhaps going to easily be this weeks new social media trend.
