Worcester – On Saturday, Jan. 19, many local women will be participating in a rally to be held at Worcester’s Union Station to commemorate the third anniversary of the historic Women’s March.

As such, the “Wave Riders of Worcester” will be taking trains, buses and automobiles to meet and rally at Union Station for the event which starts at 10:10 a.m.  The group is named for the so-called “Blue Wave” that took place in the midterm elections. Joining the group will be singer-songwriter Luanne Crosby of Westborough.

This year marks the centennial of the 19th amendment, giving women the right to vote.   Worcester hosted the first national women’s rights conference in 1850.

All are invited to join the rally.
