Lib Librarian

I took this photo a few years ago at the March for Women’s Lives in Washington DC. Over a million people showed up. It got almost no press coverage, but those of us who went will never forget it.

I was lucky enough to run into this fellow librarian from Los Angeles.

We are everywhere. We are legion!

  1. Hey Erica!
    No, we weren’t wearing pink, but that certainly was a most interesting Metro ride that day!
    It was only our second time in D.C. (the first was a year earlier for the first annual ACLU convention–what can I say, I’m a Lib too!) and we went back for the march in 2004. It was the largest ever on the National Mall, or so they say…

  2. I think I saw you guys! You were wearing pink shirts, right?

    Man, that was amazing. I felt so overwhelmed! I have never before or since seen so many people in one place. There were seas of pink shirts flowing out of the subways and filling up downtown. Incredible. Just incredible.

  3. My husband and I went–it was fantastic! It was also my first semester of library school–I graduated in August from USF.

  4. I was there, too, with my daughter and her college roomate. I’ll bet there were LOTS of librarians there and, you’re right, I’ll never forget it!

  5. My mom and I were there, and we found some people who had known my great grandmother, who was not a librarian but who did found the West Palm Beach chapters of Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, and, shortly after the passage of Roe v. Wade, sold a bracelet in order to start a fund to help women in Florida who couldn’t afford abortions.
