AN INTERVIEW WITH SARAH WEDDINGTON, THE LAWYER BEHIND ROE V WADE
BY WF FAMILY • ON JANUARY 19, 2018 • IN CULTURE
Today marks the 45th anniversary of Roe v Wade, a momentous decision in our country’s history protecting a woman’s right to choose. 45 years later those rights are being attacked and stripped from us daily. So we turned to Sarah Weddington, the lawyer who argued the case in front of the Supreme Court 45 years ago (oh and ps, she was just 26 at the time) to share with us her POV on women running for office, smashing the patriarchy, and the case itself. Her interview fired us up and reminded us why we must never go back. Take a listen below.
