Update: the #WomensWave rally has been moved from the Lincoln Memorial to Freedom Plaza, near the White House (1455 Pennsylvania Ave NW).
“Mr. President, how long must women wait for liberty?” Over 100 years later, suffragette Amelia Himes Walker’s words still ring true. Yes, women won the right to vote and have made many important gains since then. But women—and everyone—in America have grown less free as government power, red tape, spying, and control have grown.
That’s why we’ll be showing up for the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019.
Feminists for Liberty wants to make sure that libertarian women and libertarian feminism are well-represented at the D.C. march, so whether you’re attending the conference or not, please join us for a field trip to Freedom Plaza that Saturday.
We’ll be there from 1:30-4:30 p.m. and you’re welcome to caravan with us from the conference or drop by anytime.
Afterward, we invite you to join us for drinks and post-march camaraderie at Allegory bar (1201 K St NW, in the Eaton hotel, just around the corner from LibertyCon is being held). We’ll be there from 5-6 p.m. Conference-goers who didn’t attend the march are also welcome to stop by. And folks coming from the march can carpool with us.
WHO: Libertarian feminists (and those curious) are welcome regardless of gender or sex.
WHEN & WHERE: If you’re coming from LibertyCon, meet us in front of the Marriott Marquis Washington (where the conference is being held) at 12:45 p.m. We’ll caravan down to the rally together at 1:00 p.m. sharp. OR, swing by the steps of the Lincoln Memorial anytime between 1:30-4 p.m.
WHAT TO WEAR: Don your best protest tee, come dressed as a suffragette if you’re feeling fancy, rock your favorite libertarian feminist swag, or just show up as you are. We’ll have plenty of extra sashes and signs.
