Day 3 : International Women’s Strike

Wednesday was International Women’s Day. People commemorated it in a variety of ways: by wearing red, by not going into work, or by staging protests against restrictive reproductive health laws, gender violence, and other women’s issues. I attended one such protest here in Miami called the International Women’s Strike. We walked around a mile through streets which had been closed for the protests, stopping at City Hall and the Freedom Tower. I would estimate that there were around 400 people who attended. It was an uplifting experience to see so many who cared about women’s rights come together and speak out. The pictures below show myself as I make my sign for the protest and the Freedom Tower lit up red.
