When a gal gets a call, and a text, and an email, and a Facebook email from Novo Foundations' Director of Initiatives for Women and Girls Pamela Shifman and Tony Award® winning playwright, poet, actor and activist, Sarah Jones - about a "great t-shirt idea, involving a Gloria Steinem quote" we jump on out of our winter slumber!

What? It involves rhinestones too?
HELLO! We're in!
What? Proceeds** from said shirt idea realized will be donated to
organizations working to empower women, and put an end to
sex trafficking, and exploitation?
Miss Wit is pleased and humbled to announce, on behalf of Sarah Jones' upcoming performances, at the home of her ground-breaking career's start - The Nuyorican Cafe -
a bedazzled new rhinestone studded long sleeve shirt (the recreation of a gift from Gloria to Sarah) and a shimmering metallic printed USA made t-shirt that dons the ground breaking quote by the one and only Gloria Steinem:
“What has been eroticized by male dominant systems of all kinds is dominance and passivity; we need to eroticize equality,” she argues. “I always say to audiences of men, ‘Cooperation beats submission.’ Trust me.”
Like "Bella" just one of the new characters you will meet at Sarah Jones' 14 performance run at the Nuyorican Cafe starting Monday January 17, 2011 - you too can now wear this statement tee, get all sassy, and learn about and help bring to the forefront the issues of sexual exploitation and the efforts we all can take to put an end to these inequalities around the world.

Every Woman Free, Every Child in School
An initiative to end sex -trafficking
Girls Educational and Mentoring Services’ (GEMS) mission is to empower young women, ages 12-21, who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking to exit the commercial sex industry and develop to their full potential.
Back in November Sarah did a little “Giving Thanks”-themed evening at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe to show her appreciation for all your support since she started there. Sarah (and her characters!) loved hanging out with everyone so much that ‘they’ have added new dates in January and February (and are calling it “New Year, Nuyorican”) to ring in 2011.
These performances will include some of the multicultural characters you’ll know if you saw Bridge & Tunnel, and some characters brand new to the stage. There will be material in development, improv, plus intimate Q&A with the lovely audience! Special guests may stop by among other surprises: the show will change from night to night.
Happy New Year!
Every show at 8pm.
Tickets $20 in advance and at the door
