About UltraViolet

UltraViolet is a powerful and rapidly growing community of people from all walks of life mobilized to fight sexism and expand women’s rights, from politics and government to media and pop culture. UltraViolet works on a range of issues, including health care, economic security, violence, reproductive rights, racial justice, and immigration, by putting the voices of all women, especially women of color and LGBTQ women, front and center.With more than one million members across every state and congressional district, we make our voices heard to further the cause of full equality, empower women, and fight attacks on women's rights. Since our launch in early 2012, millions have spoken out in favor of fair pay, equal representation, and health care, and protested against far-right attempts to control women's health and lives. We’ve successfully campaigned to have Facebook add the first woman to its corporate board, pushed Reebok to withdraw its sponsorship of rapper Rick Ross due to his sexually violent lyrics, called out the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell to take responsibility for violence against women by players in the league, and launched numerous multimedia ad campaigns to elevate conversations about pay equity, women's health, and sexual assault.Equality at a higher frequency is what we're all about.
