My husband, Kenny, and I were happy to join the courageous women, men and children marching in the Memphis Women’s March this morning! The expected number of 3,000 peaceful protesters nearly tripled in attendance at the Judge D’army Bailey Courthouse, where the march began. Speakers before the march were US Representative from TN, Steve Cohen, and Adrienne Bailey, widow of civil rights activist, Judge D’Army Bailey, who encouraged the attendants in their march and to take the long, hard, fight forward. It was spirit-lifting to see the turn-out of so many like-minded people, defending women’s, African-American, LGBTQ, immigrant, and individual rights during the march. Thank you to the organizers of this event, it was beautiful to be a part of this momentous movement.
When: 10 am-12 pm, Saturday, January 21, 2017
Where: Judge D’army Bailey Courthouse, 140 Adams Avenue, Memphis, Tennessee
In coordination with the National Women’s March on Washington, a local Memphis March will be held beginning at the Shelby County D’Army Bailey Courthouse and continuing down Second Street.

We are proud to be sharing efforts with this worthy cause and I will be attending the Memphis Women’s March with my husband, Kenny, on January 21st! The Memphis Women’s March welcomes anyone to march with them, male or female, and states, “Absolutely everyone who supports the cause is welcome!”.
I hope all of our Nasty Women artists and supporters will be marching together on January 21st and supporting the powerful protest against the Trump presidency in the Memphis Women’s March!
