Thousands gathered at the NC Legislative Building and in Halifax Mall for the 2019 Raleigh Women’s March on Saturday, January 26, 2019. Summary of event with theme, speakers, performers, signs and more.
Busy week in Raleigh starting on Tuesday, Nov 7. Important events on Nov 7, 8, 9 and 10! Protests, trainings, documentaries, discussions. All this week!
College women still need to worry about major issues – safety on and off campus, being treated fairly, being paid fairly, health care coverage, and what happens when they decide to have children. Many don’t realize that the only right guaranteed for women in the Constitution is the right to vote. The Equal Means Equal documentary shows the real status of women, and is being shown at college campuses around NC in September, 2017.
Trying to keep track of press coverage of the WMOR during and after the march. Attendance estimates are now up to 40,000 based on people studying and estimating based on pictures of the actual march. Thanks to Sarah Moncelle for putting this together at https://womensmarchonraleigh.org/press/.

Teachers and advocates put forth great effort to voice needs for students, for other teachers, teacher assistants and staff, and for public education in general. There was a 2 day trek to Raleigh, an advocacy day, a press conference, a failed attempt to meet with the Governor, and a big arrest.
