National Mall (monuments) Washington, DC

Equal Means Equal is partnering with Catharsis on the Mall to shed a MASSIVE LIGHT on the fact that women and girls do not have Equal Rights in the US Constitution. This has to change.
R-Evolution, a 45-foot tall metal sculpture of a woman, by artist Marco Cochrane is intended to be an agent for social change. R-evolution challenges the viewer to see past the sexual charge that has developed around the female body, to the person: to de-objectify women and inspire people across the world to take action to end violence against women, create space for women’s voices and demand equal rights for all.
The sculpture will stand on The Mall (Washington DC) in front of The Washington Monument, facing the White House and Capitol Building and we will keep up a vigil to stand with her and push for ERA.
We invite you to join the Silent Sentinel Challenge by taking a shift during the 4 month R-Evolution Vigil on the National Mall in Washington D.C. beginning on November 10th, 2017. For the entire 4 months following, we will be holding a continued 24-hour vigil at the feet of R-Evolution. You can physically take part in this historic demonstration to fight for the ERA by signing up to be one of the Silent Sentinels.
