Every Woman Marches With Us 1.21.17

When millions of women march on D.C. and in 600+ cities worldwide, EVERY woman marches with us.

Every woman benefits when one woman stands her ground, raises her voice, takes her place in elected office, and uses her power for The People.

Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat at the front of the bus was the catalyst for the Montgomery Bus Boycott. She stood her ground and brought us all along the road to justice.

Many, many women marched, protested and risked great bodily harm to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964 so ALL women might be free from discrimination due to race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

In the 1970's, after many women carried the banner forward, one woman fought for her reproductive rights in the landmark Roe Vs. Wade Supreme Court ruling. Now generations of women have been able to make their own reproductive choices. We won't go back.

When Puerto Rican women petitioned for multi-lingual ballots, they helped their sisters in Ohio and Arizona and across our country to get local ballots in their first languages. They inspire women of many languages to fight for accessible ballots today.

When the women water protectors stand in the front lines at Standing Rock to be battered with rubber bullets and tear gas, every woman demanding clean water for her children in Flint and Detroit stands with them.

This the the intersectionality of our lives, Women. Your fight is my fight. My fight is yours.

When one woman marches, when one woman stands her ground, uses her voice, disrupts, resists and calls out injustice, she carries us all with her.

She shines the light on a path and we walk with her.

Rise Up, Women.

Stand together.

Lift one another and march on.
