Roe v. Wade Anniversary: Sarah Weddington to Speak at Town Hall

January 22, 2013 marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States. To commemorate four decades of women’s reproductive freedom, Sarah Weddington – the attorney who successfully argued the Roe v. Wade case at the age of 27! – will be speaking at Town Hall that evening. The conversation will include personal stories of life before Roe v. Wade, discussion about restrictions to abortion access in recent years, and plans to ensure women—not politicians—continue to make their own medical decisions in the future.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
