Sun, Dec 20: Protest Ralph Lauren’s Offensive Ads

Hope you can join me.  At the last NOW-NYC protest, I met amazing people.

Get Your Photoshop Off My Body!
NOW-NYC Protests Ralph Lauren's Unrealistic Beauty Standards
Sunday, December 20th from 1 pm - 2pm @ 72nd & Madison Avenue at Ralph Lauren
Have you seen the latest string of ads Ralph Lauren is churning out? 

Ralph Lauren's latest ads depict photoshopped models that even Barbie couldn't compete with.  Join us to demonstrate that women and girls are proud to take up space—and we will take up space this Sunday in front of Ralph Lauren's flagship store with your help! 

·      Demand that Ralph Lauren stop issuing ads that depict women as sick and waif-like.
·      Call for new industry-wide standards:  Real women demand real images!
·      Force new regulations that photoshopped or airbrushed images contain disclaimers.
