Romney’s Binders

Romney's Binders
Remember back in 2012 when Mitt Romney responded to comments about his campaign’s lack of gender diversity by claiming he had “binders full of women“? He really did.

“The Boston Globe recently reported that it had obtained the files — which were indeed literal three-ring binders full of cover letters and résumés — by way of an unnamed former Romney aide.

The binders weighed in ‘at an aggregate 15 pounds, 6 ounces,’ according to the Globe.

At the time, Romney’s remark came across as patronizing, a reflection of his awkward and detached public persona at its most visible.”
