We will keep fighting! Defend abortion rights and reproductive justice! Build the #MeToo movement!

Last week, the ISO joined with the International Women’s Strike and many other organizations to call for a day-of-action on October 4 to protest the confirmation of sexual assaulter Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

The vile reactionary and abuser was ultimately confirmed over the weekend by a 50-48 Senate vote that ignored the protests of women and survivors of sexual assault all over the country.

Make no mistake, this outcome has dealt a serious blow to the rights of women (and LGBTQ+ people, workers, immigrants, people of color, almost everyone.)

But we have the power to turn this experience of defeat into determination to keep fighting.

And that is exactly what we in the ISO are doing.

We believe that this moment is just the beginning of a new movement against sexual assault and for abortion rights, full bodily autonomy and total gender liberation for all.

Check out these abortion clinic defense projects being organized in New York City, Seattle and the San Francisco Bay Area.

And take a look below at some photos and videos of a few actions that ISO branches initiated or participated in last week.
