The campaign launched with a "Holiday Gift Guide for Nasty Women," educating on different forms of birth control that will outlast the next presidential administration. The gift guide can also be viewed on the campaign's microsite, www.nastyornice.org. Microsite visitors are encouraged to "join the nasty list" and become a member of NOW.
In addition to educating and advocating, NOW aims to give women a voice. "So we thought, why not make that voice beautiful—angelic even?" said Ossorio. That's why they gathered the "Nasty Women's Choir" and wrote custom carols like "Hark! The Nasty Women Sing" and "Donald Trump is Coming to Town." NOW has posted sing-along versions of the songs to their social media pages, and the choir will be performing around Manhattan on Saturday, December, 17th. Caroling will start at Washington Square Park at noon, and move to Bryant Park from 2-3pm. The day will conclude in front of Trump International Hotel & Tower at Columbus Circle from 3:30-4:30pm. Songbooks will be distributed at the event, but can also be downloaded on the microsite in advance.
The campaign hopes to educate, drive membership, and bring some hope at the end of a tough year. "We realize that now is not the time to sit back and be nice. We're proud to be nasty women," said Ossorio.
NOW works to promote reproductive rights, secure women's economic empowerment, and end discrimination and violence against women.
