1979, NYC. I was there!

Wow, that must have been awesome.

It's depressing that I can't even begin to imagine a march like that taking place today.

Wow! Can you share some of what it was like? Was it uplifting? Scary? Depressing? Hopeful?

I'm curious how it was compared to protests for women's rights today (which I find very scary, due to the threats from TRAs).

Uplifting. Hopeful.

I wrote a much longer reply explaining in depth - but when I went to post it, all the text suddenly vanished.

Hell yeah, that's the Woman Against Pornography protest in 1979.

Imagine how good it would feel to be in a march like that today.

Just to have that camaraderie with so many women on this issue.

The Women Against Pornography march in NYC in 1979. I marched in it. Andrea Dworkin was there marching, too.
