Women marched and rallied to end violence
Women Organized to Resist and Defend [W.O.R.D.] Sacramento held an International Women’s Day March and Rally to End Violence on Friday, March 8. It started at Southside Park and ended at the Capitol.
From the flyer: “Rise up! We hold the power to bring an end to sexual violence. Every single gain, every single right we as women have today is the result of struggle. We have to fight back. The status quo must go!”
There were demonstrations and protests throughout the United States that day and on March 9 to say: Stop Violence Against Women Everywhere – The Status Quo Must Go!.
