Babeland campaign leader Massima Lei yesterday was honored with a Women in Labor award from the New York City Council's Women's Caucus. Lei was unable to attend because she was recovering from a medical procedure. Accepting the award on her behalf was fellow Babeland campaign leader Lena Solow. 

"She was an essential member of the [Babeland] organizing committee and a central figure in contract negotiations," said New York CIty Council SPeaker Melissa Mark-Viverito. "At Babeland, she is a sex educator helping customers of all orientations and genders learn about sexuality. But at work and outside she is a fierce advocate for women of all races, orientations, gender expressions and identities."
