The Mogul Team officially invites you to participate in our most groundbreaking campaign to date: To continue the actions ignited by the nationwide Women’s March last month, millions of women across the country are teaming up to write messages addressed directly to the White House. They are voicing their concerns with women's rights and women's health issues, such as the lack of available resources for survivors of sexual assault.
Mogul's #ReadMyLips campaign began grassroots at over 24 schools such as Yale, Cornell, NYU, Smith, Oxford, USC, and Wellesley, and has expanded nationwide to millions of women who are passionate about telling our government to do right by women and giving them no choice but to listen.
All messages will be printed out as letters and placed inside a classy and beautiful sculpture designed by Saturday Night Live veterans, to be delivered to the White House on April 21st, 2017.
We are collectively bringing mass attention to the health and protection of our female bodies and rights. Every political affiliation is welcome: the more people we have helping to write these messages about these important issues, the bigger statement we can make and bigger impact we can have.
So, how do I participate in the #ReadMyLips campaign?
This is your opportunity to write a message to President Trump on what you want from him over the next four years for women’s health and women's rights. This is your chance to send a message loud and clear to the White House on why you believe it’s vital for women to have access to health care and all other rights you are passionate about protecting for the present and future.
Is there a format you suggest for the message?
The post could be in any format you wish, whether an in-depth letter, poem, song, video, or brief thought. This is your chance to be creative and have your message read by millions, in addition to one man in particular. Your post could be very personal, or speaking on behalf of all women. The post could focus on all aspects of health care and women's rights, ranging from why you should be able to choose when it comes to reproductive rights to why you deserve to have more funding when it comes to preventing sexual assault.
Or, if you prefer to follow a template, just answer the following in your post:
(1) What I hope President Trump does for Women's Health & Women's Rights
(2) Why this is important to me
Sample titles could be:
- #ReadMyLips: No. More. Rape.
- #ReadMyLips: I Have the Right to Choose Whether I’m Ready to Have a Child.
- #ReadMyLips: An Open Letter to Donald Trump from ALL Women
- #ReadMyLips: What My Vagina’s Health Means to Me in 5 Words.
How will you get my message to President Trump?

Why is the campaign called #ReadMyLips?
In addition to being about getting your message out there, as well as the association with a certain part of the female anatomy, the phrase "read my lips" has enormous political ties from when then-presidential candidate George H. W. Bush pledged to the American people in 1988 at the Republican National Convention, "Read my lips. No new taxes." We think it's time to shake up this political phrase, and re-associate it with women's rights!
So, what's next?
Ready to send your #ReadMyLips message straight to the White House, in order to make a difference in the lives of women? Let's get started!
