Leslie Labowitz in collaboration with Women Against Violence Against Women (WAVAW).
Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles CA., August 1977Site of Billboard of rock group KISS
Working With WAVAW, Heresies #6, 1980
Our work with Leslie has been part of an overall strategy to change social attitudes, to mobilize people and to pressure companies to adopt policies reflecting corporate responsibility. WAVAW grew out of our realization that the way to eliminate the promotion of violence against women via the media was not through censorship but through public education. In August, 1977, we needed powerful media exposure of the record industry’s position regarding advertising exploiting violence against women.
