Mainstream media outlets struggling to find a tasteful way to cover the “Pussy Riot” protests in Russia have another challenge on their hands, this one much closer to home. Representatives of Code Pink (as identified by the poster of the image) attended today’s “We Are Woman” rally dressed as vaginas.
This clearer photo identifies at least two of the vaginas as representatives of the Feminist Majority Foundation’s Feminist Campus project.
The costumes did garner attention, if not necessarily respect.
Representatives of Code Pink, NOW, Planned Parenthood and Rock the Slut Vote were scheduled to speak on the west lawn of the Capitol, addressing the issues of reproductive rights, equal pay and the Equal Rights Amendment.
No war on women here; Twitchy will cover it.
One high-profile supporter who could not attend sent her regrets via Twitter.
