WATCH: Jay Leno, Frances Fisher, Ellie Smeal, and Others Speak Out to #StopTheSultan in Beverly Hills!
Couldn't make it to our May 5 rally to #StopTheSultan of Brunei's Taliban-like laws in Beverly Hills? No problem.
Yesterday's star-studded #StopTheSultan rally was a huge success! We've got the photos to prove it.
“Every day the movement grows to demand that this Taliban-like penal code is rescinded,” said Smeal. “Advocates for LGBT and women’s rights are mobilized against this new Brunei penal code, and we are gratified that the Beverly Hills City Council has taken up a resolution condemning the law. People are outraged.”
Celebrities Join Women’s, LGBT Rights Groups to Protest Brunei’s “Kill-A-Gay, Flog-A-Woman” Penal Code
Celebrities, including Jay Leno and Frances Fisher, joined Eleanor Smeal, president Feminist Majority, Mavis Leno, and a host of women’s rights and LGBT leaders in a rally today across from the Beverly Hills Hotel to demand the Sultan of Brunei rescind a Taliban-like Brunei penal code.
Alice Cohan was the Director of the 2004 March for Women's Lives. These are some of her memories of putting together the historic march.
Ten years ago today, the feminist movement made history with the largest march ever on the National Mall, and ten years ago today, the feminist movement proved that we were a force to be reckoned with. If there's any memory worth holding onto, that's certainly one of them.
We'd love for you to join us at the Feminist Majority Foundation’s Ninth Annual Global Women’s Rights Awards gala dinner and reception on the evening of Monday, May 5, 2014 at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles. But time is running out!
