We Are Women…
We are moms, daughters, students, athletes, survivors and businesswomen who believe our voices matter.
In September of 2015, the Anchorage Assembly forced an ordinance upon residents that allows men to enter women’s spaces — public bathrooms, showers, locker rooms and changing facilities. The ordinance forces private businesses and public accommodations, including churches and non-profit ministries, to allow men who “identify” as women to enter private, intimate spaces designed for females. As if this weren’t absurd enough, none of these Assembly members who voted to pass this outrageous law seemed interested in talking with us — the women who will be most impacted by this new reality—to learn how we feel about it.
Through this social media platform, we are standing together to share our stories with the community to demonstrate that our voices matter. Together we say, “Nobody Asked Us”. We’ll tell you why the law that was forced upon us is anti-woman, how it has directly harmed us, and why politicians should never consider bringing these kinds of laws forward.
It is wrong that the Anchorage Assembly and Mayor Berkowitz did not ask women and girls before passing such an outrageous policy.
We hope you’ll join us in supporting women and girls all across the Municipality of Anchorage. We deserve a right to be heard, and we are asking that we all work together to undo the mess the Anchorage Assembly created with this mandate that permits men to use women’s bathrooms and locker rooms—and all in the name of political correctness.
You can dress this policy up all you want, but the bottom line is it forces women and girls to share bathrooms, showers, locker rooms and changing facilities with men. We think it’s only right that we ask women and girls in Anchorage how they feel about this and honor their opinion. Join us today and let your voice be heard!
