Reported By Women: April 6

Welcome to our new weekly roundup of Cincy happenings as told by our incredible team. Each Friday, we’ll present the sights and sounds of events we attended around the city. This week, we have recapped a couple of community-driven and empowering events that made us reflect on the power of women.

Women gathered Wednesday, March 21, at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County downtown to learn and discuss strategies around intellectual property and patents. The free all-day event featured guest speakers Zandra Smith, Linda Kocis, and others.

March for Our Lives

The March for Our Lives Cincinnati was electric. The Young Feminists Coalition, which partnered with United We Stand for the March 24 event, provided impassioned speakers, all with calls to action. All generations gathered for this movement. With echoes of “enough is enough” and “never again,” the people of Cincinnati marched. One sign read, “Just another military vet for gun control,” and another, “Arms are for hugging.” As a finale to the march, petitioners left their signs at the front of Rob Portman's Cincinnati offices. The sounds of hope in people's voices were warm even on that cold and snowy morning.

"This movement that we're in right now is unnecessary. I don’t feel like we need to explain why guns are bad. I think inherently we all know they’re bad."
