Make Equality Reality

Kathy Griffin

With the help of incredible supporters including GUCCI and Skype, Equality Now raised funds to help women and girls around the world.

“You know what? Life has given me always much better things than anything that I ever asked for, because I would have never, in my wildest dreams, imagined that Equality Now would give me an award for the work that I have done with so much passion on the same night as one of my heroes—Gloria.”

-Salma Hayek, Equality Now 2014 event honoree

Art in Advocacy

In 2014, Equality Now brought together supporters and friends for events that highlighted our mission and programs through the arts.

In March, we partnered with The Arts Effect to present “A Day in the Life,” a moving piece inspired in part by real testimonies from our Survivor Stories Series. The Arts Effect All-Girl Theater Company presented the powerful piece which opened guests’ eyes to the complex and often misunderstood realities of domestic sex trafficking.

The performance was followed by an engaging panel moderated by Lauren Pearle, Producer of ABC News’ Law & Justice Unit. Panelists included Lauren Hersh, former New York Director of Equality Now, Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge, Executive Director of Embrace Dignity in South Africa and Rachel Moran, Irish sex-trade survivor, activist and author of Paid For.

SLUT The Play

SLUT addresses the damaging impact of slut culture and the importance of being heard through the stories of teenage girls. It was written by Katie Cappiello and developed by The Arts Effect NYC in collaboration with high school students. The performance was made possible by a gift from the family of Equality Now Board co-chair Susan Smalley, PhD. Generous support was also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, the Simms/Mann Family Foundation, The Brotman Foundation of California, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, and all Hammer members.
