This is a key moment for women to resist – to rise up and boldly demonstrate that a society where women are treated as anything but equals that this will not be tolerated. Stop the War on Women!
On Saturday, October 14th women (and men) from all over Long Island representing various walks of life will stage a rally in protest of the Trump administration’s battle in the war on women. Recent passage of legislation in the House of Representatives of a ban on abortions after 20 weeks, the decree that employers will have the lawful ability to deny women coverage for contraceptives, and the ongoing fight to maintain affordable, accessible healthcare are a direct assault on women’s rights and bodies. These attacks will not be tolerated.
This event is being held in conjunction with the nationwide Handmaid Coalition resistance effort coordinating similar rallies across the country the same day. Some of those gathered in protest will wear the recognizable garb from the Emmy-winning show the Handmaid’s Tale.
Let Dad do soccer duty and come out to support women’s rights!
