Broadway & 14th St., N.E. Corner (just east of Union Square) -

We will not accept a world where


women are routinely raped, brutalized, humiliated and degraded. We will not lie down as women's right to abortion and even birth control is being stripped away. We will resist the culture of rape and pornography that equates sex with domination and conquest and treats women as mere objects to be plundered by men.

We will RESIST and we will take a big step towards DEFEATING this war on women. And, through doing so, we will become the people and the seeds of a whole better future.

A future where no woman ever again knows what it is to fear for her safety at the hands of men. Where women never again know what it is to give themselves to a man sexually for any reason other than their own desire-free of pressure, judgment, or degradation. A world where men view women as full human beings and full partners. A world where lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgendered people have not only the full rights-but the full respect-as everyone else. And a culture filled with poetry and music and other forms of art that foster deep respect towards women.

When we come together in NYC, we are doing this along with other actions across the country. Every act will be amplified, more people will be woken up and inspired, and this movement-and the possibility of real liberation-will grow!

Called by the movement to End Pornography & Patriarchy: the Enslavement & Degradation of Women
