I am 63 years old and I remember when Roe vs. Wade was passed. I was studying Psychology where one of my courses was called ‘the psychology of women and blacks’. We need to to forward, not backward. Also, I have a daughter, two daughters-in-law and a granddaughter. I want them to have equal opportunity and freedom.

I am a teacher and there were three students with me during the march. Dutch students, who care deeply about freedom and responsibility. We are wise women and need to set an example and pass on the baton.
