UltraViolet combines innovative, cutting-edge organizing with grassroots, people-powered actions to fight for equality and progress. UltraViolet is building an online community of women and men fighting to expand women's rights and combat sexism everywhere—from politics and government to media and pop culture. With over 550,000 members across every state and congressional district, we make our voices heard to further the cause of full equality, empower women, and fight attacks on women's rights. Since our launch in early 2012, millions have spoken out in favor of fair pay, equal representation, and health care, and protested against far-right attempts to control women's health and lives.
THE EQUALITY & CULTURE PROJECT
UltraViolet's Equality and Culture Project is a major new effort tapping into the limitless power of women and men who believe women deserve opportunity, freedom and equality. The project aims to expand the cultural conversation about how women lead their lives. There is an increasingly public dialogue about what a woman should and shouldn't do, how she should or shouldn't be at work, at home, with children, with partners and more. At the same time, our political discourse is often limited to fighting back on limitations to reproductive rights, rather than a proactive discussion of our productive rights, of how women can be productive in any facet of our lives and the reality of the lives we live. Through the Equality and Culture Project, we believe that we can unite and create a new moral standard for the lives women are leading today.
