Allies Call Out Fox for Criticizing Female Breadwinners

After Media Matters caught an all-male Fox Business panel attacking women breadwinners as a sign of society's downfall, UltraViolet started a petition asking Fox to fire the panelists, and MomsRising launched a Twitter campaign urging Fox to diversify its panels.

On May 29, Fox host Lou Dobbs and several Fox contributors -- all men -- lamented a study showing that a record number of women are now the economic breadwinners of their families. 

The panel and follow-up comments from the panelists drew outrage from across the political spectrum. Other Fox News colleagues tore into Erickson, Dobbs, and Williams for their attitudes -- especially Megyn Kelly, who called out Erickson and Dobbs in a special segment on her show.
