“Back in 2014, Wendy Davis was simply a Democratic lawmaker in a red state. But an 11-hour filibuster against a bill that aimed to restrict Texas women’s access to abortion thrust her onto the national stage, turning her into a feminist icon overnight.
While she is largely known for her famous protest, the former Texas state senator and 2014 gubernatorial candidate knows change is not created in a moment but in a movement, deep and sustaining, intersectional and intergenerational. As women strike, march, and embrace electoral politics in unprecedented numbers, Davis is ready for the future of feminism. She says now is the time for women to show their power to resist assaults on their rights and to strategically move forward together.
“The Women’s March was just the most extraordinary thing I’ve ever seen,” she said, “and it was a display of this kind of pent-up ‘good girl’ behavior that we’ve all been up to for a long time, where we’ve struggled to go along and get along.”
