Women's rights activists, many of whom are students at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, gathered at the Wisconsin Capitol Tuesday night to protest against the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court of the United States.

Over one thousand protestors chanted, listened to speakers and waved signs in favor of women's rights, organized labor and other issues. The protestors marched down State Street to rally again at Library Mall, where more leaders spoke to the large crowd.

The protest was organized in part by the Youth Democratic Socialists of America and Madison Socialist Alternative, two socialist organizations based in Madison.
