SATURDAY 1/25. Arkansas State Capitol. 1 p.m.
As long as there are legislators (and a president) who think women are second-class creatures incapable of thinking for themselves, the Arkansas Coalition for Reproductive Justice will rally to fight for women’s rights. At the decade mark in the history of ACRJ marches to the Capitol, there is plenty to rally about: The legislature’s latest foray into nonscience and misogynistic nonsense included the “Women’s Right to Know Act,” requiring doctors to advise patients to Google “reverse abortion” in case they change their minds halfway through a medication procedure. Women do have a right to know: to know that their legislators will say or do anything to keep them powerless over their own bodies. Remember: No dangerous sticks on Capital grounds, so you have to hold your posters. Guns, on the other hand, are legal.
