Equality Now!

EQUALITY NOW!

Katie & Meg were HONORED to collaborate with Equality Now for its 20th Anniversary Celebration co-hosted by MERYL STREEP, GLORIA STEINEM, and JANE FONDA.

Our very own SOPHIE HEARN and MARCELA BARRY represented The Arts Effect All-Girl Theater Company on April 19, 2012 at the Asia Society in NYC for a performance of Joss Whedon’s (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Toy Story, The Avengers) beautiful piece When I Speak, directed by our wonderful colleague Laura Barnett.

The Arts Effect joined an inspiring group of women on stage – including Meryl Streep, Laura Linney, Sarah Jones, Debra Winger, and Jane Fonda – to raise awareness and funds in support of this amazing organization dedicated to ending violence against women and girls across the world.

Founded in 1992, Equality Now advocates for the human rights of women and girls around the world by raising international visibility of individual cases of abuse, mobilizing public support through our global membership, and wielding strategic political pressure to ensure that governments enact or enforce laws and policies that uphold the rights of women and girls. With offices in New York, Nairobi and London, our areas of focus include Discrimination in Law, Sexual Violence, Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Trafficking. Combining grassroots activism with international, regional and national legal advocacy, we envision a world in which women and men have equal rights under the law and full enjoyment of those rights.
