This horrific backlash on our rights won’t let up without an organized, strong and visible feminist movement making demands’

National Women’s Liberation (NWL) is hosting their 9th annual fundraiser show themed “Abortion on the Ballot!” at The Backyard at Boca Fiesta & Palomino on Sunday, Oct. 15. Doors are at 5:30pm and the all-ages show kicks off at 6:30pm.
The event will feature local bands Wax Wings, Uncle Mosie, Parker Road, and DJ Wild Creatrix; raffles and surprise swag bags with gifts from local businesses; and information on getting involved in the feminist fight. Ticket price is a sliding scale donation of $10 to $20.
This benefit started as a celebration of feminists winning Roe v. Wade: 50 years later the benefit is a call to action. Now is the time to dream big, and make big demands.
The Abortion on the Ballot! event calls for the community to join and support NWL in the fight to stand up to fascist politicians and demand our rights back.
This horrific backlash on our rights won’t let up without an organized, strong and visible feminist movement making demands and keeping the pressure on to not only get those rights back, but expand our rights.
NWL is a multiracial feminist group for women and trans people who want to fight male supremacy and gain more freedom for women. They believe that change is driven by the actions of everyday people—not politicians, the courts, lobbyists, or the media.
The freedoms women have now were won by movements of people organizing and fighting for change.
NWL is not funded by corporations or their foundations, but by their members and donors — ordinary people. This money goes to sustain their organizing work, push their ideas forward, educate and support women, and make change happen.
NWL originated from a collaboration between organizers from Redstockings of the Women’s Liberation Movement (NY) and Gainesville Women’s Liberation starting in 1968.
Redstockings is a radical feminist think tank and one of the original groups of the 1960s Women’s Liberation Movement in New York City.
Gainesville Women’s Liberation is the first women’s liberation group in the South, founded in 1968. This collaboration continues today.
