According to its website, The Women’s March’s mission is to “harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change.” To help advance that cause this summer, the progressive group is promising “rage,” yet the group was short on specifics as to what that actually meant.
On Saturday, The Women’s March helped organize abortion rights rallies in numerous cities across America. Those who attended were mainly motivated by a leaked opinion draft from the Supreme Court that suggested the high court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade and send the topic of abortion back to the states.
On Sunday, The Women’s March warned that the nation would soon experience “a Summer of Rage.”
“Yesterday, we took to the streets and showed the strength of our movement,” the group’s official account tweeted. “Tomorrow, we keep fighting. This will be a Summer of Rage across America.”

Women’s March officials had made references to a “summer of rage” throughout the weekend.
“For the women of this country, this will be a summer of rage. We will be ungovernable until this government starts working for us, until the attacks on our bodies let up, until the right to an abortion is codified into law,” Women’s March President Rachel Carmona told the press.
In response to the group’s tweet saying that the “summer of rage” was “officially” beginning, Christina Pushaw, press secretary for Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, advocated calmer language after mass shootings in California and New York.
“Given the tragic events of this weekend, in Buffalo and California, I’m not sure why anyone would think ‘Summer of Rage’ is a good thing,” Pushaw said. “We need less rage in this country.”
Throughout last week, various pro-life pregnancy centers and organizations nationwide reported vandalism and other attacks.
“Abortion groups nationally have called for large-scale backlash to the momentous news, calling for protesting at the homes of Supreme Court Justices and even in Catholic masse,” The Daily Wire noted. “Protestors have already shown up to demonstrate at Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s and Chief Justice John Roberts’ homes and have promised to protest at Justice Samuel Alito’s home on Monday evening.”
It is unclear which groups or individuals are responsible for the vandalism seen across the country at such locations.
