International Women’s Day – Celebrating 100 Years!

EQUAL GROUND’s hard hitting Advertisement campaign to celebrate International Women’s day appeared in the three leading news dailies of Sri Lanka- Daily Mirror, Lankadeepa and Metro News on Monday 8th March 2010.

The advertisement Campaign “Giving Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender women of Sri Lanka a voice” was launcehd on 7th March 2010 at an evening function at the EQUAL GROUND Safe Space.  Attended by over 50 women the evening was filled with entertainment and solidarity as women from all walks of life gathered together to celebrate their womanhood.

Using the catch phrase  “Aren’t we all Sri Lankan Women” the advertisements were designed to bring attention to the issues of Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender (LBT) women in Sri Lanka and to reiterate that regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, all LBT persons are also women and deserve to have their rights upheld.
