Thanks to everyone who signed the petition, pro-rape Rep Fisher resigned! A step forward against misogyny, rape, and hatred.

Such wonderful, wonderful news! UltraViolet and each of you who signed the petition to remove pro-rape Rep Robert Fisher from office helped make it happen! Rep Robert Fisher was caught secretly running a pro-rape online forum from office. Yesterday he resigned amidst pressure from UltraViolet, their allies, and everyone who signed the petition.

UltraViolet does incredible work to fight against misogyny, sexism, rape, and hatred, so if you’d like to support them and can donate a little, please do.

Here’s what UltraViolet did to stop rape promoter Rep. Fisher:

Over 42,000 UltraViolet members and supporters signed a petition calling on the New Hampshire Legislature to reject the promotion of violence against women and to expel Rep. Fisher.
We put in calls to the chair of the key House committee to pressure him to oust Rep. Fisher.

UltraViolet members in New Hampshire joined Action Together NH, Granite State Progress, and Rep. Debra Altschiller for a rally yesterday morning to demand Rep. Fisher get kicked out of the legislature.

Every time we get a rape promoter to leave office or get a sexual predator fired, we are changing our culture for the better. We are setting an example for other powerful men that they won’t get away with demeaning and violating women without consequences.

Fighting against hatred with petitions and positive action really do make a difference!

Thank you for helping make the world kinder and safer, and helping fight against misogyny, hatred, sexism, and rape.
