2019 Womens March

The 2019 Women's March was dubbed The Bread and Roses rally, reminiscent of the 1912 Bread & Roses protests which revolutionised workers’ rights for women. 

“The woman worker needs bread, but she needs roses too,” Rose Schneiderman said in 1911, a Polish-born American suffragist who coined the phrase 'Bread and Roses' to indicate a worker's right to something higher than subsistence living.
