A is For

A is For

Please help A is For reach it's fundraising goal - we're getting very close! A is For is a campaign challenging the traditional meaning of the scarlet letter by encouraging women, and the men who support them, to wear the A proudly.Women are waking up to the aggressive legislative assault on their health taking place in state houses and in Congress. It is an assault that threatens our physical freedom with a force unheard of in the last 40 years. With so-called “personhood” bills and a systematic campaign of dis-information, the overriding message we’re receiving is one we thought we’d overcome a long time ago: that women are too ignorant, too confused, too selfish and too thoughtless to be trusted with the control of our own bodies. We are taking back the A by re-appropriating its meaning to one of dignity, defiance, and autonomy. And we take our inspiration from Nathaniel Hawthorne’s fictional heroine of 17th century Puritan Boston, Hester Prynne, a woman branded by her fellows for daring to live according to her own conscience. We are refusing to be shamed into silence.The A is For campaign will produce satin scarlet A pins and t-shirts to raise awareness of the assault on women’s rights and to reclaim the narrative from those who choose to use women’s sexuality as weapon of shame. The campaign will also raise much needed funds to support the Center for Reproductive Rights. For the past 20 years, the Center for Reproductive Rights has used the law to advance reproductive freedom as a fundamental human right that all governments are legally obligated to protect, respect, and fulfill.This first Fundrazr will cover the campaign’s initial startup costs, as well as those involved in producing the A ribbons for sale. Please visit our website at AisFor.org for more information on our campaign and for the latest news in the fight against the war on women. Our fundraising campaign now comes with incentives! For every $100 donation, you’ll receive an A is For t-shirt. Additional incentives will be announced over the next few days. And when we reach our goal, one lucky donor, chosen at random, will receive an Amazon Kindle Fire! We have big plans to fight back against the non-stop assault on women’s rights, but we can’t do it without your help. Thanks!Take Back the A! Maureen Herman, Gina Loukareas, Kellie Overbey, Martha Plimpton, Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney, Sarah Thyre and Lizz Winstead
