A Villagers for Women’s Rights March, part of a nationwide event, will come to The Villages’ Spanish Springs Town Square this weekend.
The event will take place at Spanish Springs Town Square on Saturday, Oct. 17, starting at 9 a.m. There will be a golf cart rally that morning and a walk in the afternoon.
The event is a collaborative effort between the Women’s March Network national and local chapters, and Youth Empower.
“This will be a peaceful rally to stand up for women’s equality – equal pay for equal work, a living wage, women’s right to decide and keep choices on reproductive health, and a right to have the word ‘no’ heard and respected,” says the organization’s website.
The organizers plan to hold events across the state and nation, including demonstrations in Ocala and Gainesville.
