Chic Beats Lina Esco TEXT MARINA CHILLINGARYAN PHOTOGRAPHER DARIAN ZAHEDI Lina Esco is a badass – no exaggeration. The star of S.W.A.T., a crime drama TV show, is the only female on the team to perform most of the stunts herself. The S.W.A.T. premiere date is November 2, where she appears on the screen alongside Shemar Moore and Stephanie Sigman. At the same time, she is the founder of the Free the Nipple campaign, which started in New York and was later supported by stars like Miley Cyrus, Lena Dunham, Rihanna, and Chrissy Teigen. Finally, she is a strong, passionate advocate for women’s rights. But it doesn’t end there; Lina also recently launched THE 78 HUMAN CAMPAIGN, the mission of which is to fight for the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment stating the equality of women’s and men’s rights. Although the amendment was first introduced into Congress in 1923, it was defeated in 1982. To change the course of history, Lina has joined forces with Global Philanthropy and former aide to President Obama, Johanna Maska, to start a 24-month-long campaign to contribute to the historic movement to pass the Amendment and have a greater impact by raising enough funds to engage the best lobbyists and lawyers in developing this initiative.
