The Jewish Action Alliance plans to hold a protest rally outside headquarters of L'Oreal's U.S. subsidiary Cosmair on Aug. 15. At the rally, which is also supported by the National Organization of Women, female executives will "demonstrate against the anti-Jewish policies" of L'Oreal and express support for a boycott of the firm initiated by Reps. Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) ("The Rose Sheet" Aug. 8, p. 6).
