As we were setting up for the Spencer Tunick Election Night Event I watched Democracy unfold. . .
It became increasingly clear that we need to “KeepFighting”. No time for reeling, time to get everyone educated about the existing system, laws, and what we can do as Americans to keep our voices heard. #KeepFighting #Onward

The election results teach us that democracy is not granted. It is not on auto pilot. Democracy requires we the people be involved in every single aspect from local through the national arena. This means to educate every citizen on the laws. We have an opportunity to show the next generation what it means to work and gain our freedoms in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds. Is this not what this country is born for, is this not what the last few hundred years of fighting for equality for all men, women and children in this country (and globally – if we protect other countries we protect ourselves) have taught us?! #OnWard #KeepFighting #NatalieWhiteForEqualRights #Democracy
Shown above is my sculpture “Sisters of Liberty”. It was placed at the Washington Mall the day before the election.
It reminds me we have an obligation to all men and women of this country, as citizens of a democracy, to use our voices. All people deserve a fair democracy. We need to work with government to create transparency, improving the laws, and showing the world the great country that is the United States of America.
The Equal Rights Amendment is a piece of legislature that will help to protect against many forms of devastating and undermining prejudices in society. The passing of it will help not only women, men, the LBGT community, minorities, and therefore every person in our society by extension.
Let’s get the Equal Rights Amendment passed and work toward a more balanced country, sending a sign of unity and capable democracy, influencing the world in a positive way.

The 1st Recorded Women’s Demonstration In America took place during the American Revolution.
Lead by Penelope Barker (1728-1796), considered to be the “mother of Women’s Political Liberation”. A loyal patriot of the American Revolution, Penelope Barker organized the famous Edenton Tea Party, rallying 50 other women in Edenton, North Carolina to sign a resolution boycotting British tea. The move was made in response to the 1773 Tea Act, passed by Parliament, which gave the British East India Tea Company a monopoly in the colonies and was the last in a series of taxes and policies that colonists fiercely resented.
Throughout the colonies, Patriot leaders urged women, in their role as consumers, to support the rebellion by boycotting British imports such as cloth and tea, in keeping with the nonimportation resolutions passed by the First Continental Congress in 1774.
Therefore…On October 25, 1774, Barker gathered 50 women in the home of Elizabeth King, where they signed a resolution supporting the boycott as they drank tea made from mulberry leaves, lavender, and other local herbs. The event – dubbed the Edenton Tea Party — is significant historically because it is the first recorded women’s political demonstration in America. Their resolution stated: “We, the aforesaid Ladys will not promote ye wear of any manufacturer from England until such time that all acts which tend to enslave our Native country shall be repealed.”
The reaction to the Edenton Tea Party, demonstrated a common lack of respect for the voices of women. A reaction that reminds me of some of the conversations I have had, via social media, and in person, with people who have a tendency to attempt to distract from the need for the Equal Rights Amendment, by tearing women down. The political cartoon which was circulated in the London Press at the time mocked the women, showing them as bad mothers and women of loose morals.
Interestingly enough to note, the articles in the colonies were more supportive than those back at home in England. Where did the renegade support for its own women go in this country?

Jeannette Rankin was the first woman to serve in the U.S. Congress. She helped pass the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote, and was a committed pacifist.
My woman of inspiration for the week. I salute Rankin, and strongly advocate for women in the justice system. It is women such as Rankin that have allowed me, and illustrious women such as Patricia Arquette and Jessica Neuwirth, to pick up the fight for Equal Rights In the United States of America, for all women, men & children. #EqualMeansEqual #MarchForERA.
Please have a look at Rankin’s Biography here, and inspire ourselves and all of our children to engage in pacifism as a form of moving government.
The pacifist takes a stand… http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/jeanette-rankin-casts-sole-vote-against-wwii

Alexis Arquette was born on July 28, 1969 in Los Angeles, California, USA as Robert Arquette. She is known for her work on Pulp Fiction (1994), The Wedding Singer (1998) and Bride of Chucky (1998).
According to her family the actress and activist “fiercely lived her reality in a world where it is dangerous to be a trans person – a world largely unready to accept differences among human beings, and where there is still the ugliness of violence and hostility towards people that we may not understand. … We learned what real bravery is through watching her journey of living as a trans woman. We came to discover the one truth – that love is everything.”
She died on September 11, 2016 in Los Angeles. Sending Prayers to her family.

These are two people who I am honored to call my friends. They are great supporters of art, feminism, and my using my art to shed light upon the need for the Equal Rights Amendment in this country. I have had the extreme pleasure to be part of their creative process at Burning Man this past week.
As you can see here, it has been a lovely experience.
Please watch exclusive video content on The 8 App https://www.the8app.com “NatelieWhiteERA” & more images on @MarchForERA on Twitter & NatalieWhiteForEqualRights on Instagram.
Burning Man is has taught me the value of our footprint as humans on this earth, and how we can mitigate a great deal of the damage we naturally cause. It has also taught me the beautiful results of team work, and the power of art under a endlessly big sky, via the rituals of artistic creation. I feel strongly this is a tradition that should go on expanding the horizons of people for years to come.
I look forward to seeing and participating in the power of Burning Man http://burningman.org and enjoying the amazingly positive energy, in the future. And, today I am enjoying the here and now…the transience of the art. Art, much of which will never be created or seen again requires I stay in the moment. These art pieces are present for those lucky enough to witness them. Pieces to be carried away after the burning of the man on the final day, and brought back to places all around the world, in our minds eyes alone.
Feminism and art are intertwined through history. Often the act of a woman creating art is, in itself a representation of feminine strength, and the people supporting this strength. This time on a desert with other creative people, in nearly meditative creation, through sands and winds, and sun traveling across the sky, gives me the energy to fight the good fight for the Equal Rights Amendment. Congress, here I come, for the American People. It will happen.
Thank you to Elise and Lawrence for the support and belief in what I am, and what I am trying to accomplish. Thank you for a new artistic experience.
Let us all keep our eye on the goal! #MarchForERA

#WomensEqualityDay is my #FridayMotivation
As an artist I feel that women have a tendency to give in to the negative competition among ourselves. Regardless of the genre…film, writing, producing, art, sales, theatre, tech development, music.
I would like to mention today, as an activist and a feminist, and as a human trying to get us equal pay for equal work in the United States of America, the need for women to support one another.
I would not be who I am without my female friends, and I feel that all women should pay it forward.
The English actress Eleanor Tomlinson recently mentioned the type of support among women that I love to see!!
In this article for the Sunday World (.com) she supported a fellow actress, Jennifer Lawrence, with a shout out, as a women who is moving women’s rolls in film forward. http://www.sundayworld.com/entertainment/movies/jennifer-lawrence-praised-for-better-female-roles
“Eleanor Tomlinson has praised Jennifer Lawrence for paving the way for women in Hollywood.
The 24-year-old ‘Poldark’ actress is a huge fan of the Oscar-winner and says Jennifer, 26, has inspired Hollywood to create more leading roles for women, rather than just love-interest parts.
She told The Sunday Telegraph’s Stella magazine: “Jennifer has really opened up a whole category of films for women. There are now superhero movies fronted by women and I think directors generally are moving away from that stereotypical woman’s role that is just about being flirted with by a man before falling into his arms.”

In September of this year (2016) I am honored to be showing at Gallery 151. Gallery 151 is unique in a few different ways, even among the super galleries in NYC. It is cutting edge because it is not only supportive of artists such as myself, who are focused on a specific cause to benefit others, it is also founded by a man who understands how “green” works.
Michael Namer (Founder 151 Gallery).
MICHAEL NAMER, CEO – Managing Principal Alfa development.
Michael Namer has been developing real estate in downtown New York for the last 30 years. As the CEO and Founder of Alfa Development, Michael brings his attention to detail, construction expertise, and hands-on approach to real estate development to every project. Read more about Alfa Development here. http://www.alfadm.com
Michael is an accomplished painter, owner, and founder of Gallery 151 http://www.gallery151.comat 132 West 18th Street, NY a local gallery that promotes emerging contemporary artist and community art projects – such as the Urban Green Initiative – that encourage the discussion of issues of sustainability in our time.
“The mission of Gallery 151 is to support emerging New York-based artists and provide a platform for their talent to be recognized by the public. In 2009, Gallery 151 expanded its vernacular to include issues of sustainability and environmental responsibility. The Urban Green Initiative at the gallery was a series of exhibits, charity events, and performances through 2009 and 2010 that used art to encourage the discussion of these issues.”

Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, is the executive director and under-secretary-general of UN Women. Mambo-Ngcuka is one woman who understands the globally positive impact that will be gained when the United States of America would ratify the constitution to include the Equal Rights Amendment.
On the 14th of this month, August 2016, while speaking at a Unisa gathering celebrating Women”s Month, Mlambo-Ngcuka reminded the world of the findings of The World Health Organization. The negative impact of violence against women has reached pandemic proportions.
I agree when Mlambo-Ngcuka says, “Extremely disturbing is the tolerance of all crimes against women.”
Knowledge is power, and just because we may not see the direct abuse of women in our culture, (even as police statistics from live reports prove rape and abuse is at a global high – even in the united states), we can educate ourselves and work toward the E.R.A. as a force for good in our country, and the world, for our daughters, our mothers, our sisters, our selves, and all of the people directly related connected to all of us women. . .

Today Capitol Police are looking for me, but I’m already in Women’s Equality Jail.
As I said in the article written on me, by BY RACHEL SADON IN NEWS ON AUG 9, 2016, “There are 30 million women and children in poverty that wouldn’t be if women were just paid a full dollar [for what men earn]. That should be a crime—not writing six letters at the Capitol,” White says.

I was a strong athlete throughout school and I emphatically support women in sports! One program created in part by the UN Women, in tandem with others in Brazil, is one that has come to my attention and I would like to pass it along here, as written by the https://www.olympic.org/news/ioc-news
getty images of Kaillana (14), Marcelly (16) and Adrielle (12) who have benefited from the program.
Read he full article here. https://www.olympic.org/news/-one-win-leads-to-another-a-rio-2016-social-legacy-in-the-making
THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE (IOC), UN WOMEN AND WORLDWIDE OLYMPIC PARTNER P&G’S ALWAYS BRAND CELEBRATE THE COMMUNITY-BASED SPORTS PROGRAMME WHICH SETS OUT TO BUILD LEADERSHIP SKILLS AND INCREASE SELF-CONFIDENCE OF 2,500 ADOLESCENT GIRLS IN BRAZIL AS A SOCIAL AND OLYMPIC LEGACY OF RIO 2016.
“This project has helped me to believe and pursue a dream which is to become a great athlete. I feel very much empowered,” said 12 year-old Adrielle with poise. “You can tell the teenagers who take part in sport are different to those who don’t. We are more open-minded and we end up discovering ourselves.” With dreams of being a professional athlete or a rhythmic gymnastics teacher, the young Carioca ran with the Olympic torch on 5 August as it approached the end of its journey to the Maracanã Stadium.”
