Boston's higher education community is abuzz about the new web site RateBU.com, which presents photos of two female BU students at a time and asks users to click on which young woman is "hotter." Since going live over the weekend, RateBU.com has been condemned as sexist, boorish and possibly illegal.

Guests:

  • Meghan Faulkner, manager, Boston University Women's Resource Center; BU senior
  • Andrew Phelps, host, Hubbub

This segment aired on December 8, 2010.
