Speakers Corner Philadelphia. Awesome woman makes powerful Terf speech. TRAs trying to drown her out.

"We are women...We will not be silenced by anybody...We are telling the truth. The truth speaks for women"

"You cannot have our bathrooms, you cannot have our dressing rooms, you cannot have our sports, you cannot have our children, you cannot have our freedom, you cannot have our speech, I speak for women!"

It's so great to see the Speakers Corner idea, which was happening in the UK, now happening in the States.

Drum and chant "Terfs go home!" until your voices are hoarse, boys.

We're just getting started here. We've been kind, we've been tolerant, but the whole trans rights thing ain't workin' out for us.

Hopefully someone will do captions or transcript for this video for us Deaf women to read. Loving this anyway!

I can try to transcribe it later when I have a mo'

If you click more under the video title there is a YouTube generated transcript!

Yesterday there was no such transcript when I clicked on more.

Where is the next one?? I will go. It's typical to see mostly white men shouting down women of color. Very lovely. /snark

support to the sisters, do not be distracted by TRAs, get a better PA system and shout louder, ignore them TRAs do not give them the satisfaction of acknowledgement unless you do so to mock them and thank them for highlighting the point that they desperately try to stop women speaking, then carry on speaking your piece ignoring them.

There comments on the YouTube video are from around the world. This is inspiring. I hope more of us will come together online and in person. Way more of us.

I know there is that women's conference in London (FiLia). I am thinking about going. I wish there was something like that here in the US.

There’s the WDI USA conference this September in DC! Idk the exact dates but it should be easy to find online.

The worst is the face of the smirking men holding up the speaker. I know that face.

By the way - the American suffragette flags are beautiful! Love the colors

We need paid for security and a better sound system. Let's do a Go Fund Me for private security for the next one. We would have to start it under a fake name, of course.
