Women’s rallies against President Trump and his Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett swept through cities including Los Angeles, Washington and New York on Saturday, despite ongoing bans of some large gatherings in many.
In New York, protesters prominently gathered in Washington Square Park in Manhattan chanting slogans like, “Vote him out.” Late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was widely commemorated at the marches, with signs such as one that read, “Vote, and tell ‘em Ruth sent you!”
In Los Angeles, protesters dressed up as characters from The Handmaid’s Tale-- a book of a dystopian future some liberal activists assure will become reality if Barrett is confirmed to the court.
One held a sign reading, “The system cannot be reformed-- it must be thrown out!”
At one point, they came face to face with anti-abortion demonstrators, chanting “my body, my choice” as the pro-life demonstrators held photos of newborns.
