Representative starts social media campaign in response to ‘joke’ amendment

Last month, a legislator proposed a joke amendment in session, saying that there should be an age and weight limit for strippers. New Orleans. Rep. Helena Moreno, among others, found the “joke” offensive, and now she’s taking a stand for Louisiana women.

Moreno recently started the social media campaign “It’s No Joke” to shed light on gender inequality, The Advocate reports.

“Let’s stand together against this type of rhetoric and demonstrate that issues important to women are no joke,” says Moreno’s website. “Women in Louisiana continue to face staggering inequities, and our state consistently ranks poorly when compared to the rest of the country.”

Moreno plans for the campaign to eventually become a political action committee.
