On August 26, women, men and community organizations joined W.O.R.D. in the streets as we marched in defense of women’s rights nationwide. The response to the call showed how much a fighting women’s movement is needed at a time when women’s rights are being severely threatened by anti-choice laws and major cuts to healthcare, housing and other social services.

What’s next? We need to unite an organize a movement in the streets that can make our rights a reality. August 26 was a great start but we need to continue to mobilize for future actions.
W.O.R.D. is hosting a community meeting on Sun. Sept. 9 to discuss next steps for organizing against the assaults on women’s rights. Peta Lindsay--an L.A. W.O.R.D. organizer and the 2012 Presidential candidate for the Party for Socialism and Liberation--will be the featured speaker.
Join the W.O.R.D. contingent at the Slutwalk • Sat. Sept 9, 12 noon at Delores Park
