Although it’s been said, many times, many ways, women still aren’t equal to men and reproductive rights are in danger.
Enter the Nasty Women’s Chorus, which actually includes some men because feminism is for everyone, who will be singing modified Christmas carols in New York City parks this Saturday, Dec. 17. With songs like Donald Trump Is Coming to Town (“You better pull out / ‘Cause our president’s Trump”) and Single Belles (“Oh what it fun it is to ride / This guy I met today”), the carolers are promoting women’s reproductive rights as part of the National Organization for Women’s Nasty or Nice campaign.
The project was inspired by the rise in searches for IUDs after the November election, over fears that abortion would be ruled illegal and access to birth control could become more restricted. “History has faced even darker moments than this, and good people have rallied to turn things back in the right direction,” says NOW-NYC President Sonia Ossorio in a statement. “We will do that.”
