Bye Bye Billboard!!

Friends -

The billboard has come down!

Whether or not the gym took it down “as scheduled” or our little-petition-that-could made a difference – it’s a win for the Bethesda community. A great thanks to all those that have signed, written, called, quit, and stood up against sexism. It may be a “small” victory, but we can’t sit by and expect change to happen all by itself.

Victory is sweet, but there is much more to do. The goal now will be to make sure that Equinox doesn’t put up a new billboard that is equally offensive or worse. We’ll be keeping an eye on Equinox, among other habitual offenders, and if you’d like to stay informed follow/like us on Twitter/Facebook/Tumblr/Wordpress.

Thanks again, and Congratulations!!

  1. I am so thrilled that the bill board is down now. Free society or not-the children should not have to deal with this sort of thing and let’s be honest here-exposing children to sexual innuendos is mental abuse.

  2. One down, many more sexist advertisements to go! LMA
