Stop the War
Sat March 8 Noon
International Women's Day
Starts at: Holy Name Cathedral
735 N. State St, Chicago
Followed by a march (bring signs!)
· Abortion on Demand and Without Apology!
· End Pornography and Patriarchy:
The Enslavement & Degradation of Women!
· Fight for the Liberation of Women All Over the World!
Abortion rights are in a state of emergency! 203 new restrictions to abortion were passed in the last three years. Five states have only one abortion clinic left. Anti-woman bigots harass women at abortion clinics across the country. 97% of rural counties have no abortion providers. Upcoming court rulings threaten to close dozens more clinics nationwide. Forcing women to have children against their will is a form of enslavement!
Meanwhile, women are slammed backwards in every realm:
from the mainstreaming of violent and degrading pornography to the global epidemic of rape, from a culture that celebrates pimping to the shaming of women who choose to have sex outside of marriage, and from the sexual enslavement of millions of women and girls in the sex industry to the widespread celebration of Pope Francis while he has changed nothing of church doctrine that enslaves and humiliates women and LGBT people.
Take to the streets this International Women's Day.
Through our public resistance we will expose the illegitimacy of this whole war on women and put the woman-haters on notice that we will not sit silently by. We will express our outrage and bring alive a culture of defiance and liberation. We will wake up and rally forth many thousands more, refusing to stop until we win.
The future of women is at stake. Which side are YOU on?
