‘Do it I Will, to My Last Gasp’: Scenes & Signs From a March for Reproductive Rights

TEXT AND PHOTOS BY PAMELA WOLFF | Saturday, May 14, there was a March from Brooklyn across the bridge to Foley Square in downtown Manhattan.  Surrounded by the magnificent public buildings that tell us in limestone, “The true administration of justice is the firmest pillar of good government,” thousands of women, and not a few men, peacefully demonstrated.  We brought our home-made  banners just like we always have, with our demands for freedom of choice expressed in a thousand different ways.  My way was to try to make the point that I have done this all before, and resent that at this late age I have to do it all over again.  But do it I will, to my last gasp.
