FED UP Rally

The following images are from a recent rally by the group FED UP, a group that organizes for reproductive rights, ending sexual violence, and economic equality for women. Occuring in Burlington, the rally to end rape culture, sexism, and patriarchy marched from the University of Vermont campus, past "fraternity row", (the former site of Sigma Epsilon, which distributed the now infamous "rape survey" that caught national headlines).
