Waldo County Cares sponsored a women's march and rally that ended in the parking lot of the Waldo County Judicial Center Sunday, Oct. 18, to honor a recently deceased feminist heroine and call for social justice

Speakers at the event included Belfast poet Karin Spitfire, Ivy Lovato, Maine House 97 Rep. Jan. Dodge, D-Belfast, and Nicole Littrell of New Hope for Women. Maryjane Viano Crowe, who attended, said she thought the crowd numbered about 100.

Jesse Lucas, a New Hope for Women prevention educator who was there, said the rally was timed to coincide with similar events across the country last weekend in honor of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Sunday marked one month since Ginsburg's passing.
