Lena Dunham Taps Famous Friends to Show Support for Planned Parenthood
Lena Dunham has recruited celebrity friends including Amy Poehler and Ellen Page to wear a T-shirt supporting the Planned Parenthood campaign.
The Girls star/creator teamed up with the women’s rights group earlier this month as she went on a tour promoting her new book, Not That Kind of Girl.
The limited edition pink shirt that was sold during the tour is printed with the message ‘Lena loves Planned Parenthood’, and is available for purchase online, with all proceeds going towards the nonpartisan advocacy and political arm of the organization.
With midterm elections looming on November 4, Dunham called on some of her fellow female celebrities to share their support of sexual and reproductive health services to women across America.
Dunham took to her Instagram account on Thursday to share photos of her friends posing for ‘selfies’ while wearing the shirt, including actresses Poehler, Page, Leslie Mann, Rashida Jones, Mindy Kaling, Gabrielle Union, America Ferrera, Girls co-star Jemima Kirke, and singers Sara Bareilles and Sara Quin.
Dunham even shared her own take on the snap by posting a topless photo of herself with the logo of ‘Lena loves Planned Parenthood’ covering her breasts.
It isn’t Dunham’s first collaboration with Planned Parenthood – last year organizers handed her the Maggie Award for Media Excellence for promoting frank conversation about sexuality through her TV series, Girls.
