Hundreds of women vow to organize, vote in November.
Hundreds of women gathered on the Statehouse plaza on April 28, to protest legislation they believe infringes on their reproductive, personal, and economic freedom.
The event – called NH Women United – continued the rallying cry of fighting “the war on women” and combating recent legislation initiatives in both the New Hampshire House and U.S. Congress. The women (as well as a few good men, as noted by a few speakers), focused primarily on getting others registered to vote and educated about what was going on at the Statehouse.
A slew of Democratic politicians – from candidates for governor Jackie Cilley and Maggie Hassan, to Congressional candidates like Ann McLane Kuster and Carol Shea Porter – shook hands and renewed acquaintances before offering stump speeches.
Concord NH Patch will post a full story from the rally later on today.
