The head of the Federal Reserve Bank has the most influence of any one person over the state of the American economy. Appointing someone who both thinks women are intellectually inferior and paved the way for Wall Street bankers to destroy our economy is wrong for women and wrong for our economy.
President Obama: Please do not appoint Larry Summers as the Chair of the Federal Reserve. As the architect of Wall Street deregulation, someone who holds the sexist belief that women don't learn math and science as well as men, and someone who Administration insiders say has the "courage to say 'YES' to Wall Street", Summers is the wrong choice for this position.
