TELL THE NEW YORK TIMES TO HIRE A VETERAN WOMAN WRITER

We here at Cupcake dream of one day running little postcard campaigns (inspired by the Guerrilla Girls, of course) to help convince cultural gatekeepers to hire women writers and improve the abysmal 80/20 gender split in our nation's highest literary echelons.

But for now, the good folks over at Working Assets/Working for Change are spearheading a campaign to get the times to hire Barbara Ehrenreich (we like to think of her as the anti-Caitlin Flanagan):
Even though Ehrenreich has been writing for the Times for less than two weeks, the results have been so stunning that readers and pundits alike -- led by Slate.com columnist Timothy Noah -- are calling for a "Draft Ehrenreich" movement to convince the New York Times to make her summer job permanent or risk losing the best columnist its editorial pages has seen in decades.

Cast your vote here.
