DGR NY is supporting National Women’s Liberation and Redstockings for an action to raise consciousness about street and workplace harassment, sexist advertising and the connection between them.
Call on men to stop harassing women and to speak up when they see other men harassing women. Let’s call out ad-makers for using imagery that oppresses women and men for falling for it. These ads validate men’s urge to sexualize (and objectify and feel entitled to) women.
We’ll be picketing and handing out flyers in front of American Apparel, a company which is notorious for objectifying women in their advertisements. Come fight with us!
When: Saturday, February 7th, Noon-2
Where: Outside American Apparel, 704 Broadway, just north of West 4th Street, New York, NY (see on map)
