BOSTON (WHDH) - The Women’s March hosted over 400 rallies for reproductive rights across the nation Saturday, including Boston.

Demonstrators met on the steps of the State House holding signs condemning the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Organizers specifically called on attendees to vote next month and make their voices heard.

One protester, Carolina Becerril, said that the protest gave her hope, adding that “there is still a lot of energy and momentum around reproductive rights.”

Protestors met in cities across the country, including the nation’s capital, where thousands gathered for the cause. According to the Women’s March website, the organization seeks to “harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change.” 

“I hope that more energy, momentum and anger– because I do think anger is a good thing and has been demonized by white people– comes out of this,” Becerril said. “So we can continue to advocate for reproductive rights for everyone and for just and equitable care.”
