Summary
Bigger Than Roe rally led by the Women's March ATX organization in Austin, TX, February 11, 2023.
The Women's March ATX held a Bigger Than Roe rally on the south capitol steps in Austin, Texas on February 11, 2023. Speakers across the spectrum of women shared their stories, their disdain, their pleas for help and talked about the intersection of all human rights issues. A trans woman led chants as the small gathering marched from the rally site to the governors mansion and back through the streets. As rally's are, it was a space for both education and expression together in solidarity as a community.

However what differed between this rally and others I've attended at the capitol was 1. a lack of police presence (a discussion, visual and verbal, for another day) and 2. the backdrop of the event. Texas Capitol was/is under construction to rehabilitate and preserve the historic building. I couldn't stop looking at the towering scaffolding and cold steel that kept people away from the exterior so that it might be properly cared for. I found myself wishing I was able to do the same for my own body against legislators whose only end game is control. If the funding, time, effort and energy can be found to preserve buildings, it is certainly there to preserve and better care for bodies

Of women.
Of the Black community.
Of the LGBTQ+ community.
