500,000 is a Go! Push Pop performance in collaboration with Megan Welch exposing inter-military rape in the context of transnational feminism. “500,000” refers to the number of women sexually assaulted within the ranks of the U.S. Military. Inspired by Kirby Dick’s award-winning documentary Invisible War, Go! Push Pops is taking the U.S. Military’s longstanding war against women to task from the inside out. Dressed in the likeness of gender-bending officers, Go! Push Pops will lead a processional along 14th Street protesting in our embodied feminist idiom the U.S. Military’s longstanding sexually motivated violence against women.
