March is the month of women’s history, and on Saturday the annual “March of Equality” will gather hundreds of fans.

Demonstrators will march for women’s rights at the Arts Alliance in Fort Myers.

It is an opportunity for women, men and children to express their support for equality. The organizers want people to take it with them to speak out.

At the end of the march they will have food trucks, artists and joint political speakers at the state and local levels.

Among them are Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nicki Fried and State Senator Annette Thaddeus, who are running for governor of Florida, and Jacqueline McMiller, who is running for mayor of Fort Myers.

The interim president of the Women’s March in Fort Myers, Katie Mayo, said it was important to speak out for change.

“This is also our country,” Mayo said. “It’s not a country of white men, it’s a country of all shapes and sizes, ages and colors, and when we need to reflect that in our laws and in our culture, and everything we do to do that is important.”

Mayo said she was disappointed with the latest action by the legislature.

“We were not happy with what happened in the legislature at this session, which has just ended, because it was more like an attack on women and the solar industry and any groups that did not meet the basic views of our governor and many of our lawmakers.” Said Mayo.

The Florida legislature has passed a bill banning abortion in 15 weeks.

The march will begin at 10 o’clock. in the Arts Alliance.
