This is a transcript of footage from the the Women Speak Out press conference that took place June 16th, 2016 in Tacoma, WA.

If possible, I strongly urge the reader to view the WSO footage in video form, in full or in part. The text pales in comparison to actually witnessing these women speaking out. Furthermore, video imparts a greater understanding of the the aggressive reactions that come to bear and the difficulty women have even gathering to speak on this topic.

Knowing that not everyone can or will watch the footage, it is my hope that transcription will aid in amplifying the voices of these women.  I hope to provide a faithful alternative for those who find it difficult and triggering to view the emotional content of the footage, or who may find fast reference material helpful in sharing the important messages of these women.

I am in no way affiliated with Women Speak Out or the Just Want Privacy campaign. This transcript was made as faithfully as possible and to the best of my ability, in spite of the abundance of cross-talk and shouting from the audience.
