Reports from the October 16-22 National Week of Action

Across the country, women and their allies have been taking to the streets during the National Week of Action to Defend Women’s Rights organized by WORD.

As Mitt Romney and President Obama scrambled to win women’s votes and avoid offering real solutions to the issues women grapple with on a daily basis throughout the debates, local WORD organizers coordinated lively demonstrations in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, New Haven and Los Angeles.

The Week of Action concluded with a protest outside the presidential debate in Boca Raton. Read full report here.
