Justin Herman Plaza Site of Pro-Woman Actions and Entertainment
Justin Herman Plaza was the site of several feminist actions on Saturday, January 26th, as this week marks 40 years since the passage of Roe v. Wade. A Celebration of Women, Life and Liberty began at 10 am with speakers including the famously Limbaugh-bashed birth control champion Sandra Fluke and a myriad of children's activities.

The celebration continued with a flash mob dance ritual at 11:30 am to break the chain of violence against women and girls. From noon to 2pm Radical Women and supporters of women's rights gathered on Market St. at Justin Herman Plaza with signs to protest the Walk for Life anti-abortion demonstrators as they marched through downtown San Francisco.

On January 22, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, several groups sponsored a pro-choice march through downtown Los Altos.
