On January 21, several people across Los Angeles participated in the women’s march that ignited women to raise their voices against sexual assault and show support towards women’s sexual health. To continue the initiative and momentum from the women’s march, Mogul, a platform for women worldwide that allows people from every community to voice their opinions, started a campaign called
#ReadMyLips in support of women’s rights and women’s health issues.
#ReadMyLips was launched on Feb. 21 and initiated at over 24 schools across the United States, including USC. The campaign got its name from the phrase, “Read my lips: no new taxes,” used by the then-Republican presidential candidate George H. W. Bush at the 1988 Republican National Convention. This campaign allows people to address President Donald Trump directly by writing messages to him about the protection of women’s rights. People can create accounts on Mogul and post their messages. Those who are not comfortable with writing letters to Trump can take a picture with a sign that demonstrates their support for women’s sexual health and then share it on social media.
All the messages that will be posted on Mogul’s website will be printed out and placed in a floral sculpture designed by Saturday Night Live veterans. This sculpture will then be delivered to Trump at the White House in Washington DC. on April 5, 2017.
I urge you to participate in this campaign and show your support for women’s rights.
