Women’s Rights

May 09, 2022

The last week was difficult for many Americans as news of the draft proposal to overturn Roe v Wade, stripping women of the right to choose after almost 50 years of precedent, was leaked to the press. I’ve been grappling with the layered reasons of how we got here and the emotional effect this has on me and the real world consequences for people I care about. The thing that I keep coming back to is that we have to always fight for equality and justice. We can’t let our country be controlled by a party that doesn’t respect women, suppresses the vote, and is driven by hate and fear. Our love has to be stronger than their hate, and we have to act now! -Shepard

BERLIN, GERMANY – JANUARY 21: A Woman wearing a USA flag as a headscarf attends a protest for women’s rights and freedom in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington in front of Brandenburger Tor on January 21, 2017 in Berlin, Germany. The Women’s March originated in Washington DC but soon spread to be a global march calling on all concerned citizens to stand up for equality, diversity and inclusion and for Women’s rights to be recognised around the world as human rights. Global marches are now being held, on the same day, across seven continents. (Photo by Steffi Loos/Getty Images)
