Alice Prince agreed and decided the physical barriers separating her and the crowd were getting in the way. She encouraged the crowd to break the barriers and gather with her on the steps of the decommissioned City Hall where she emotionally spoke on behalf of Mayor Krewson.
“We are unstoppable,” Prince said. “To all the women here today: no matter how many people try to silence you, your voice can’t be stifled. Your light is not dimmable. Your spirit is unbreakable. Your commitment to equal rights for women is not negotiable. You are unstoppable.”
