“Telling pro-life women that they aren’t welcome at the Women’s March excludes about half of us from a conversation on what women need to thrive. We will march for all women — born and preborn — invited or not, because women deserve support in their careers and in their relationships. We don’t have to pick just one,” said SFLA’s Kristan Hawkins.
“Making the Women’s March a hostile place for pro-life women shows that the purpose of this march isn’t about supporting women,” said Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins. “This isn’t a ‘women’s’ march, it’s an abortion march at which radical feminists sell out women by throwing away all issues except ending preborn life. The message that women must choose between career and family is modern misogyny that undercuts all of us.”
SFLA’s 3 largest counter events will be in:
- Austin, Texas: The Austin counter event will take place at 1100 Congress Avenue, Austin TX, 78746 at 9:00 am CST and will be coordinated by Faith Elwonger.

- Washington D.C.: The Washington D.C. counter event will take place at 1325 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington DC, 20004 at 11:00 am EDT and will be coordinated by Elizabeth Nogueras.
SFLA demonstrators will be carrying signs reading, “The Future is Anti-Abortion.”
Additionally, SFLA will hold counter-demonstrations in cities where SFLA has launched the new Campaign for Abortion Free Cities. For a full list of Women’s March counter-demonstrations, visit studentsforlife.org/womensmarch. Students from among SFLA’s 1,250 established student groups will join the demonstrations.
Although SFLA has been unwelcome at previous Women’s Marches, we have continued to show up year after year to be a voice for the preborn and women targeted by the abortion industry. SFLA has experienced harassment and hostility from pro-abortion advocates at these events.
Students for Life Action (SFLAction), a 501c4, along with its 501c3 sister organization, Students for Life of America (SFLA), make up the nation’s largest pro-life youth organization and a political and policy operation engaging people of all ages. Together they work to end abortion — the human rights issue of our day — and provide political, legal, and community support for women and their children, born and preborn. Headquartered in Fredericksburg, VA, SFLA has more than 1,250 groups on middle, high school, college, university, medical, and law school campuses in all 50 states. SFLA creates strategy, policy, and programming to connect those most targeted for abortion with people ready to help and builds a framework for political engagement on their behalf. SFLA and SFLAction have more conversations with those most targeted by the abortion industry than any other pro-life outreach in the world, reaching more than 2 million people across social media platforms each week and engaging in approximately 100,000 digital conversations per month. Over the last 15 years, President Kristan Hawkins has grown SFLA into a $15 million organization preparing for a Post-Roe America.
