Meet at Library Mall by State Street at 1 P.M. March to State Capitol
Marrch would like to welcome the college students (and everyone who would like to attend) back with a speak out and March to the Capitol for Abortion rights. We’ll start by the library for a speak out then March to the Capitol.
In 2019 a survey found 1 in 4 UW-Madison undergrad women experienced sexual assault. The number is higher for lgbtq students (63% surveyed).
Statistically for female under grades
Roughly 15,640 female undergrads,
11% are raped = 1,720 students,
20% get pregnant = 344 abortions needed
People deserve agency over their body no matter what circumstance. They should have a choice whether they want to carry a child. We understand that college party culture goes hand in hand with rape (most unreported) and rape goes hand and hand with unwanted pregnancy. We understand it is your body, your choice no matter what, for your duration at Madison.
Come make your voices heard with Marrch. A group that is ready to welcome you, March with you, and support you during your time in Madison.
