Lincoln Woman’s March Celebrates Woman’s History Month
Lincoln (KLKN) – The Lincoln Woman’s March Committee met Saturday at Antelope Park to celebrate Woman’s History Month.
While normally the committee marches to the capital for the Lincoln Woman’s March, this time they decided to celebrate in a more intimate setting. This allowed them to commemorate past marches that brought them together in support of woman’s rights in a variety of communities.
“We’ve been marching for the past two years quite consistently, so this year we wanted to make a platform to celebrate where we are today from all that marching that we’ve done and come together and celebrate woman.”
This event featured multiple speakers who spoke about the importance of knocking down racial, ethnic and gender barriers that are imposed on select groups of people.
“My dad passed away when I was just five years old from stage four stomach cancer, I was raised by a single mom so we have that woman can do anything spirit, that has always been a mantra of my life especially growing up with her and seeing defy gender stereo types.”
Committee member Andrea Evans said she’d like to see all woman of all different nations come together to work on women’s equality issues. They want to support other women and show them how to get through obstacles that often hold women back.
“All woman of all different nations coming together and working together. We’re about all inclusivity and making a more powerful impact together we make a mighty fist and so that’s what it’s all about, pulling all woman from all nations, genders together and making a mighty fist to continue to make change in our community and beyond,” said Evans.
