LIPSTICK disrupts the Iron Pipeline
LIPSTICK is women leading the way, helping daughters, sisters, friends, colleagues, and neighbors say:
We will no longer allow ourselves to be exploited. We refuse to be used to take a life.
When a man tells a woman, “buy this gun for me,” she will say “NO.”
When he says, “hide this gun for me,” she’ll know she would be enabling violence and risks going to jail.
When he says “you’d do it if you loved me,” she’ll know that’s not what love looks like.
LIPSTICK empowers women to reduce gun violence in their communities.
“I’ve been telling Hillary Clinton and anyone who will listen– LIPSTICK is the right fix.”
