LADY PARTS JUSTICE | (LE) POISSON ROUGE

Lea DeLaria, from Orange Is The New Black

Lady Parts Non-profit Justice, took over (Le) Poisson Rouge for their "Golden Probe Awards." The organization brings together writers and comedians to shine a light on public figures who stand in the way of advancing women's rights.

The fundraiser featured many notable presenters including comedians Abbi Jacobson, Ilana Glazer, Sarah Silverman, Samantha Bee, Lea DeLaria (pictured), Phoebe Robinson, host Jean Grae, and Texas politician Wendy Davis. Awards included, "Best Acting Like You Care About Women In A Non-Supportive Role," and "Best Original Science," pointing to politicians and celebrities who used their platforms in an unproductive way toward womankind.

(Le) Poisson Rouge was the perfect place to showcase this night of comedy and facetious awards, with its stage, impeccable A/V and in-house Food & Beverage
