Women’s Rights Groups March on Kansas Governor Sam Brownback


April 28, 2012 – Around 300 people marched on the state capitol in Topeka to demand equality for women in Kansas and across the nation. Speakers addressed issues including women’s access to healthcare, violence against women and the overall gender-based inequality that still exists in this nation, and which appears to be on the rise.

Kari Ann Rinker, the State Coordinator for Kansas NOW, a women’s rights advocacy group, led the march from the Brown v. Topeka memorial to the capitol steps. Rinker has been spearheading the efforts to stop Governor Sam Brownback’s anti-woman agenda and says organizers will continue to seek dignity for women.
