Hands Up For Justice: Women protesting for racial justice 2021. Photo by Karin vonKrenner 2021 (1/1)

As protests roiled across the USA from 2020-21 women led the forefront for some of the most impactful, peaceful demonstrations,  demanding equality and recognition. The Pandemic  gave  women a voice and platform to demand rights in education, work and as, mothers.

We haven't seen this level of women uniting together  for their rights since demanding the Right to Vote in the Suffragette movement.
