WASHINGTON, DC – MAY 03: Pro-choice demonstrators gather in front of the Supreme Court of the United States on Tuesday, May 3, 2022 in Washington, DC. In a leaked initial draft majority opinion – obtained and published by Politico, and authenticated by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts – Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito wrote that the cases Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey should be overturned, which would end federal protection of abortion rights across the country.

In every state, from red to blue, feminists took to the streets to show anti-abortion lawmakers what they thought of abortion bans—and to protest the loss of a fundamental right that women and girls have held for 50 years.

2. Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson was sworn in.
