“I think it’s absolutely insane that some people have fewer rights than others, and I’m grateful that M·A·C has decided to focus on women while I’m a VIVA GLAM Spokesperson. I have so much to say and so much to share, and I’m going to let my lips and lipstick do the talking!” — Cyndi Lauper, M·A·C VIVA GLAM Spokesperson
“I’ve been familiar with the campaign and have been wearing M·A·C since I was ten years old. To be joining the likes of iconic former VIVA GLAM spokespeople is an honor. My new VIVA GLAM lipstick colour is amazing. It’s very me – a bluish pink, great for everyday, a little bit ’80s. I hope that women buy this lipstick, and honor themselves and honor the cause.” — Lady Gaga, M·A·C VIVA GLAM Spokesperson
Since the very early days of the AIDS epidemic, women have been heroes – as advocates, activists, healers, legislators, and program designers. These women have volunteered to join the fight and support people living with the virus, often because they had lost children, parents, friends or lovers to the disease, and because they felt they could make a difference. And they have.
In honor of all the women who are living with the virus and those working to curb its spread, the M·A·C AIDS Fund is pleased to announce $2.5 million in new donations to support efforts waged by women and on behalf of women. From Our Lips energizes women and answers the needs of an important, underserved population with HIV and AIDS.
From Our Lips focuses on global HIV hot spots like South Africa, the Caribbean and the United States’ rural South and Washington, D.C. It supports programs in regions that are confronting the complicated causes of HIV infection in women and girls: Violence, discrimination and unequal access to financial and social resources.
The initiative will encourage donor support and cast a media spotlight on the women who have been powerful heroes: those who help others cope with the illness, and those who are now underdogs in their efforts to fight HIV among themselves.
