On Saturday Oct 2, 2021, hundreds of thousands of women, feminists, and allies marched for Abortion Justice from the streets of Washington D.C. to the Supreme Court of the United States, and at sister rallies across the country. Their goal was to defend and demand reproductive freedom for all and to speak out against new legislation in Texas that would deny the right to safe and legal abortion as guaranteed by Roe v Wade. Along with the D.C. rally, organized by Women’s March, the women’s rights organization that spearheaded the largest single-day demonstration in U.S. history in 2017, over 650 events took place across all 50 states.
Counterdemonstrators also showed up:
