Women are once again second class citizens to men in this tourist destination
by Candace Mercer
In a brave and stunning show of defiance, a mob of 250-300 trans rights activists in Port Townsend attempted to silence a group of 35, mostly older/disabled women and their male allies. When push came to literal shove, these men proved the patriarchy is alive in 2022.
The women held the line and were not intimidated. The women won because the attack drew international condemnation due to the violence against them. Shaming women for wanting to have boundaries around who has access to their bodies is the epitome of rape culture.
