LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Several hundred people gathered Saturday in downtown Lexington to take a stand for women’s rights.

The National Organization for Women put the march together.

While the group walked through the streets of downtown, people chanted slogans including: “Women, united, will never be divided!”

Two women there said they were proud to see so many people involved in the community.

“Women, having the opportunity to speak out and have more of a voice. You know, we have to have a voice,” said Anne Allen. “And our voices need to be heard.”

Patty Abell agreed.

“It must mean a lot to a lot of people, so I’m very thrilled that there’s solidarity with all of these people with us,” Abell said.

Saturday’s event marked the third anniversary of the women’s march.
