Unite Against the War on Women: Women's Rights Activist speaks out

Published on May 21, 2012 by CarolinaExposedDVD

Raleigh, North Carolina-Hip Hop NC- Unite Against the War on Women is a national protest that kicked off on April 28, 2012 at state capitals across the nation. In downtown Raleigh about 100 people gathered to fight what has recently come to be described as "the war on women."

The protest is in response to anti-choice and anti-women legislation that has been so dominant in every state this past year. Republicans have introduced several major anti-abortion bills that women's rights activists say could place severe limitations on access not only to abortion, but complete reproductive health and family planning services. Roberta Penn, a retired journalist now living in Wilmington, was the original founder of the Raleigh group and a state leader.

N.C. United Against the War on Women was one of many local organizational chapters that have sprung up around the country since February, when two women in Michigan started the organization and posted it on Facebook.

We caught up with, Claire Moylan, a conservative, and women's rights activist who has protested the suppression of women's voices and voices of those who represent the communities. In this video she explains why she joined the movement. If you would like to join the movement you can email her at and also Coming soon: website....
