Florida Women – Are You Angry Yet?
Fighting Back for Equality & Rights!Despite decades of progress for gender equality, the rights of women and girls in the United States are under attack. Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade Governor Ron DeSantis and our GOP super majorities in Tallahassee have been systematically trampling the rights we have fought for and gained over the past century.
Given our political landscape it is difficult to feel confident about our rights but we must not give up. We must remain vigilant. We must fight for our daughters and granddaughters for a world free from inequalities, discrimination, violence and FOR CHOICE.
Join us May 4th for our Women’s program featuring three outstanding Florida feminist leaders. Find out how we can and will fight back!
