Paulina Porizkova is fighting for her granddaughter.
The model on September 3 to share a photo of herself with Olivia Otcasek, the granddaughter of Porizkova’s late husband Ric Ocasek’s son Christopher. (Christopher kept the original spelling of the family name, while The Cars frontman dropped the T from his name.)
Porizkova captioned the post, “Me and my amazing granddaughter (ok, step-granddaughter) @oliviaotcasek.”
She continued, “Yeah. I care. I care about her and my other granddaughters and my goddaughters and my friend’s daughters and your daughters and sisters and mothers and wives. And that’s why we need to push for ERA. #ERANOW @eracoalition For all of us.”
Porizkova gave photo credit to her friend Colleen Otcasek, who is Olivia’s mom.
The model, who recently spoke out against ageism and in a new Los Angeles Magazine cover story, took to Instagram earlier this week to slam the new Texas abortion law. The controversial law — earlier than many people learn they are pregnant — and incentivizes private citizens to report those who aided in terminating a pregnancy.
In a post, , “Another unacceptability. Taking away a woman’s control of reproduction and her own body. This renders us firmly second class citizens- if not chattel — forcing women, in essence, to be walking incubators. Being pro choice doesn’t mean I’m pro abortion. It means I’m for PRO CHOICE.”
