A video by Jason Cole:
Courtney Cole: Welcome Missouri.
We have both men and women here and I am so happy that everybody is here for human rights and women’s rights today.
Teresa Hensley: What a fantastic day to have women out fighting for their rights.
Paula Willmarth: We have been fighting this fight for way too long. We’re tired of it. We’ve had enough.
Marchers: It’s important to stand up for the rights of women which I think are being eroded every day.
This is a human rights issue.
We’re here to say that our voices will no longer be silenced. We’ll always be strong and, uh, we’ll always stand together no matter what.
Whether it’s women’s rights today or worker’s rights tomorrow or voter’s rights the day after, uh, we have to stand in solidarity because these are human rights and they’re being threatened.
