Women's Equality Day - Speakout & Demonstration

In light of recent attacks on abortion rights, voting rights, workplace protections, and the lives of Black and Brown youth, we are standing up and fighting back. We will not sit by and let right-wing forces seek to undo the gains won by the Civil Rights movement, the movement for women's rights and every progressive movement that has changed the history of this country for the better. Women nationwide are taking to the streets to defend the gains of our movements. Join us on August 24th and speak out for why you defend women's rights and equality for all. Together we say: "We won't go back! We will fight back!"

Call to Action: Nationwide Demonstrations for Women’s Equality Day – Aug. 23-26

Join WORD in the streets August 23-26 in united actions nationwide to defend all of our rights against this right-wing attack. Saturday, August 24, is the 50th anniversary of the historic March on Washington, an important turning point in the struggle for Civil Rights. August 26 is National Women’s Equality Day, a holiday that commemorates the ratification of the 19th Amendment that granted women the right to vote, a right fought for and won by the heroic suffragettes. What better way to commemorate these important holidays than by staying in the streets to defend the very rights for which our forebearers fought?
