Lady Parts Justice (LPJ) is the first not safe for work, rapid response reproductive rights messaging hub that uses comedy, culture and digital media to sound an alarm about the terrifying erosion of access to reproductive rights.
In 2012, Lizz Winstead, co-creator and former head writer of The Daily Show, wanted to do more to leverage her experience in the worlds of comedy and broadcasting to help destigmatize abortion, call out misogynistic politicians, and rally voters to fight back against anti choice legislation on a federal, state and local level.
Around the same time, Michigan State Rep. Lisa Brown was banned from the statehouse floor for using the word VAGINA when arguing against a transvaginal ultrasound bill. When she asked what she SHOULD use instead of vagina, the Speaker of the House suggested something less offensive like “lady parts.”
Lisa’s relentless push back to a politician who was offended by the word vagina, yet felt an absolute entitlement to legislate it – was just the last push Lizz needed, and in honor of Lisa Brown, “Lady Parts” Justice was formed!
LPJ is now a comedy war room that produces hilarious strategic and educational content on issues around reproductive care and abortion. Our work is served up across diverse media, from videos and apps to podcasts, and live shows. Pulling no punches, LPJ gives voice and action to folks who care about access to abortion, but aren’t sure how to fight back. The goal? To create a fun and active social community who work together to expose and remove politicians who are reproductive health hazards.
At LPJ, we advocate strongly for the reproductive health and rights of women, all genders and non-binary people. Our advocacy has one mission: Whatever your gender identity, we will fight for safe, dignified and affordable reproductive healthcare. Join us! These anti-choice assholes aren’t gonna expose themselves…(except when they are)
