Mitt Romney's 'Binders of Women' Go Viral

Posted By on Wed, Oct 17, 2012 at 1:40 PM

Mitt Romney's comment that he had "binders full of women" as governor of Massachusetts set the Interwebs on fire during Oct. 16's second presidential debate. The GOP challenger made the remark in response to a question about women's equality in the workplace, describing the hiring process for his cabinet as governor.

"I went to a number of women's groups and said, 'Can you help us find folks?' and they brought us whole binders full of women," Romney said.

#BindersFullofWomen shot to the top of Twitter trends within minutes, and Tumblr put out multiple memes of actual binders full of images of women and reactions to the comment by women attending the debate at Hofstra University in New York.

Romney's Binder also soon became a new Twitter entity and the term has its own Facebook page.
