Lady Parts Justice is a rapid response, creative production team made up of writers, comedians and activists. This 24/7 rapid response team is on call to make videos, artistic memes and create national actions that respond instantly to the breaking news surrounding reproductive justice issues. Within minutes, or hours, LPJ blasts the perpetrators dispensing damaging information about abortion, crisis pregnancy centers, birth control as well as taking down those who shame and stigmatize women for wanting, having and demanding safe and healthy sex lives on their own terms.
LPJLinfuses comedy into reproductive rights spaces while also infusing knowledge and activism into our pop culture and social lives while inspiring folks who have not been active in the feminist and reproductive justice movements to get on board.
One of LPJ’s main goals is to expose the bad guys on a local level;bringing together, comedians, artists and reproductive rights activists to create fun and outrageous ways to expose the hometown extremists who are fighting against everything from access to sex education to shaming women for daring to demand justice for rape or equal pay for equal work.
