LADY PARTS JUSTICE ANNOUNCES THE OFFICIAL LAUNCH OF LADYPARTSJUSTICE.COM
Top comedians, writers and performers have formed Lady Parts Justice, the first hilarious and interactive website, taking on the reproductive rights insanity in all 50 states in a not-safe-for-work way
The Virtual Reproductive Rights Information and Rapid Response Messaging Hub Will Launch July 15th with a Livestream Event
National Day of Pride for Women Taking Place on September 27
Lady Parts Justice is a collaborative team of comedians, cultural influencers, technologists and activists who are using humor and outrage to expose, remove and replace anti-choice zealots with pro-choice, pro-women politicians. The site will launch via a livestream event on July 15, 2014. Tune in to ladypartsjustice.com on the 15th to watch Lizz Winstead, Goldie Taylor and Lea DeLaria, live from NYC, reading stories that women have submitted about their abortion experiences. From Austin, TX, Amy Hagstrom Miller will be giving viewers a live tour of her clinic that is soon closing due to the restrictive laws in TX and from LA, celebrity Lady Parts Justice Leaguers will be sharing messages as well.
Lady Parts Justice’s site will feature an interactive map spotlighting funny and factually informative videos for all 50 states – exposing the politicians working to completely eliminate choice and access, while highlighting progressive Lady Parts-friendly politicians. The site will also feature rapid response using humor, which hasn’t been done in the past – exposing the hypocrites, liars and “nice-looking spokespeople” who aren’t really nice at all with hilarious, irreverent and poignant videos reminding them of the consequences of messing with women and their anatomy. PRESS HERE to watch a video they created starring Sarah Silverman!
Lady Parts Justice will also be hosting the first ever V To Shining V, a national day of pride for women, with celebrations in all 50 states taking place on September 27, 2014. V To Shining V 2014 will be the first annual fall event that serves as the push we all need to step up, get loud, go to the polls in November and toss out politicians who have decided the biggest problems in our home states is what women do with their vaginas.
The team leading this national women’s movement will be encouraging women and men across the country to throw soirees and organize kick-ass block parties featuring comedy, music and a little dose of what’s on the ballot. Some of your favorite stars have already committed to hosting parties, including: comedian Sarah Silverman in Concord, NH, The Daily Show co-creator, writer and comedian Lizz Winstead in St Paul, MN, Orange Is The New Black star Lea Delaria in Harrisburg, PA and Salon.com editor-at-large and MSNBC political analyst Joan Walsh in Madison, WI! Additional headliners will be announced on July 15 – stay tuned.
*In 2013 alone, more than 624 bills were proposed regulating women’s bodies, while zero bills have ever been proposed regulating men’s bodies.
*In the first three months of 2014, 733 pieces of anti-choice legislation were introduced in state legislatures.
ABOUT LADY PARTS JUSTICE:
Lady Parts Justice was formed in 2012 by Lizz Winstead and Creative Majority 501 (c)(4) co-founders Arun Chaudhary and Scott Goodstein. In 2013, writer and activist Sarah Sophie Flicker joined the team and Lady Parts Justice hosted Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can Choose, an online telethon highlighting comedians Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer and Kathy Najimy in the name of Texas abortion rights. The telethon was just a taste of the talent that has committed to this project across all avenues, from Lena Dunham to Chuck D to Jean Grae.
