Readers Poll

What do you think of the Women's March SLO denying entry to the Central Coast Health Coalition?

  • Women's March leaders have every right to protect their attendees from misinformation.
  • I thought the Women's March was for all women and their allies.
  • Let the anti-vaxxers march, and let Women's March leaders choose who sets up informational booths.
  • This is why women shouldn't plan things. Too much drama.
