Many protesters came dressed in Handmaid's Tale costumes, modeled after the subjugated women in Margaret Atwood's novel and Hulu series of the same name. The handmaid characters in the fictional works were frequently raped and forced to bear children for infertile couples.Demonstrators have been dressing up as the characters in recent years to protest against acts of oppression against women.Democrats, for example, remain skeptical that Barrett, if nominated, would seek to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court case granting Americans the right to an abortion.Barrett in 2006 signed off on a two-page print ad that called for Roe v. Wade to be overturned. The ad referred to the landmark decision as barbaric and called it a raw exercise of judicial power. Men of quality don't fear equality, one sign reads. Don't tread on me, another sign reads, accompanied by a picture of a hissing rattlesnake in the shape of a uterus. After the announcement of Ginsburg's death last month, women all over the world began mourning. The late Supreme Court justice, who died at 87 of complications from pancreatic cancer, became known as a feminist icon.Ginsburg's legal career was marked by a series of arguments advancing women's rights and gender equality, and she served as the inspiration behind several books, movies, and dolls.Barrett, if nominated to the bench, would replace Ginsburg. A demonstrator showed up donning accessories appearing to resemble Trump. The demonstrator's outfit seems to portray a person who's been incarcerated, suggesting the demonstrator either believes that the president should or will be in jail. Ginsburg's dying wish, made just days before she passed, was that she not be replaced until a president takes office. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was among those who echoed her sentiment.The voters should pick the president, and the president should pick the justice for the Senate to consider, he said last month.Lewis died in July after a months-long battle with pancreatic cancer. One of the chief leaders of the Civil Rights Movement, Lewis is regarded as a US civil rights hero.Former President Barack Obama and other prominent lawmakers expressed his condolences after Lewis' death. He loved this country so much that he risked his life and his blood so that it might live up to its promise, Obama said. And through the decades, he not only gave all of himself to the cause of freedom and justice, but inspired generations that followed to try to live up to his example. The counterprotests, called the I'm With Her rallies, were organized by the Independent Women's Forum, a conservative nonprofit group. Does the so-called Women's March speak for YOU? an invite for the rally asks. If the answer is NO, join us as we champion women, not tear them down.The Women's March represents just one social movement that remains ongoing in the United States. Protests against police brutality kicked off in May after the death of George Floyd, a Minneapolis man killed by police. Demonstrators continued protesting through the summer after reports of several incidents of police brutality targeted toward Black people.
