Taos Women Rising gather to mark 100th anniversary of right to vote

Posted

About 100 activists gathered on Taos Plaza on Saturday (Jan. 18) to celebrate women and take part in a version of the nationwide Women's March. Now in its fourth year, Taos Women Rising provided a space for women and allies to advocate for equality, climate change justice, reproductive rights and immigration, among various other issues.

The 2020 event marked 100 years since American women earned the right to vote, and it gave folks an opportunity to send a loud rebuke to President Trump before this year's presidential election. Saturday's long list of speakers included local public figures, students, artists and musicians. "This will be, I think, the most important election of our lives," said Susan Herrera, New Mexico House District 41 representative. "Let's get out to vote. Let's make change for our future, for our kids and for our planet."
