If you don't SEE something, SAY something
Is your shul dinner brochure including a picture of him but not her? Say something. Does a magazine you enjoy reading refuse to print pictures of women? Write a letter or email their editor.
Here are emails for some of the publications that currently do not print pictures of women. Let them hear from you:
Ami Magazine: firstname.lastname@example.org
Family First: email@example.com
Flatbush Jewish Journal: firstname.lastname@example.org (they sometimes include women's photos, but rarely).
Mishpacha Junior: email@example.com
Mishpacha Magazine: firstname.lastname@example.org
STAY in the Picture
Are you being honored? Covered in a magazine? Send them your head shot! Ask to be included. If your family is taking a family photo--don't duck out. If you are in a group shot for an organization, try to stand in or toward the center so you can't be cropped out, If they ask you to leave the picture, ASK WHY! Express your disappointment that you are being excluded. We need to all set an example that women belong.
Husbands, Sons, Fathers: We need you, too!
If you and your wife are being honored, refuse to allow yourself to be pictured without her. We need you to be our giborim chayilim, and help us win this battle! Your efforts and support can help us make a difference.
