Two Women Share Civil Discourse About Whether University's New Campaign Is Sexist

Oct 19, 2018

The University of Wyoming has a new recruitment campaign featuring the slogan "The World Needs More Cowboys." It rolled out with a video and new advertising materials, but some on campus are not happy about it. Christine Porter is a professor of community and public health, and says the slogan excludes women and people of color. Helen Raleigh is a Chinese-American UW alum. She also writes for the conservative publication The Federalist, and recently published an article supporting the new slogan.

Wyoming Public Radio's Melodie Edwards brought the two women together over a video conference call for our series, "I Respectfully Disagree."

Helen Raleigh says she was impressed with her UW classmates' diversity.
