Women represent 58% of Facebook’s userbase. They are responsible for 62% of the sharing and 71% of the “daily fan activity”.

Ultraviolet, an online community dedicated to expanding women’s rights and combating sexism, began an online petition to object and are organizing a protest in front of Facebook’s HQ in New York for this Wednesday. The petition received 53,000 signatures in 48 hours.
