UltraViolet plans to protest the lack of women on Facebook's board.

picture 2 10 Womens Rights Group Plans Protest for Tomorrow at Facebooks NYC HQAt the beginning of April, progressive women’s rights group UltraViolet announced a petition that aimed to convince Facebook to add a woman to its currently all male, all white board. Looks like Facebook hasn’t bowed to their demands just yet, so UltraViolet is planning a rally tomorrow outside of Facebook’s NYC office on Madison Ave.

Feminist activist Shelby Knox, she of early aughts documentary fame, tweeted the following: “Tomorrow, feminists are rallying in front of Facebook’s NYC office to ask them to put women on their board. Join us?”

The rally is scheduled for tomorrow, April 25th, at noon, when UltraViolet intends to deliver the signed petition to the Facebook offices.
