Dame and the MTA in NYC … @dameproducts @MTA

Adafruit 2019 2081

Dame Products, friends of Adafruit, and another NYC woman-led company, is in the news … The New York Times:

Anyone who takes the subway regularly in New York City knows that riders can’t escape the ads for erectile dysfunction drugs.

There are the Hims ads, which suggestively feature cactuses, both standing and slumping; there are the Roman ads, offering to deliver such drugs directly to men’s doorsteps. Given all of this, shouldn’t we expect to also walk by an equal number of ads hawking women’s sexual health and wellness products, featuring, say, a giant papaya? And yet, as we all know, such placards are few and far between.

Last week, Dame Products, a sex toy company featuring products that cater to women, sued the Metropolitan Transportation Authority for violating Dame’s rights to free speech, due process and equal protection. Why? Because, despite the abundance of cactuses everywhere, the authority won’t allow Dame’s advertisements on the subway. Dame’s lawsuit speaks to critical obstacles for sexual equality in our business practices and culture today.
