2018 Women’s March focuses on elections

Hundreds gathered in Albuquerque’s Downtown Civic Plaza for the 2018 Women’s March Sunday morning. Marches like this one were held this weekend across the globe, from London to Washington D.C. to Albuquerque.

The temperature dipped below 40 degrees, but participants bundled up and headed to the intersection of Fifth Street and Marquette Avenue to start their walk, which ended at Civic Plaza. Participants gathered at 10 a.m., and the first speakers at Civic Plaza began around 11 a.m.

The event’s theme this year was geared toward inspiring young women to vote in the upcoming local elections.

This topic has gained popularity, as many firsts came about from previous elections around the United States — from the first openly transgender female elected in Virginia to the first Muslim woman elected to Congress in Minnesota.

Aside from the central theme, many aspects of oppression in women’s lives were discussed in the speeches and showcased

Serial killer slaughtered 7 innocent women in his ‘murder mobile’ and police fear there could be more

The battered black and blue Ford van was often seen driving around New Britain, Connecticut. It belonged to drifter William Devin Howell. It was 2003, and he was using the van while he did odd jobs and mowed lawns in the area.

Originally from Hampton, Virginia, William had been in trouble with the law over drug-related crimes, before moving on to Connecticut. He was the kind of man who went unnoticed in the neighbourhood. People trusted him to do their DIY, but then he’d quickly be forgotten. However, 11 years later, everyone would know his name, and that van would become known as his ‘murder mobile’.

On 31 July 2003, Nilsa Arizmendi, 33, was reported missing by her sister. Nilsa had a drug addiction and had been living in a local motel with her boyfriend, a convicted drug dealer, and making money through prostitution. But no one had seen or
