Hayley Williams addresses “current war on women’s bodies”
Earlier this morning, Hayley Williams weighed in on the recent controversy regarding women’s bodily autonomy on Twitter. In a tweet, the Paramore frontwoman calls upon men specifically to direct their attention to the recent changes in the government and lawmaking.
Additionally, Williams makes a comparison to the Hulu show The Handmaid’s Tale, suggesting that some plot points could become a reality if men don’t start supporting women with allyship.
Recently, many states have been making stricter laws surrounding the topic of abortion. For example, Georgia’s version of the Heartbeat Bill, which could go into effect as early as 2020 according to The New York Times, would ban abortions once a heartbeat could be detected. Additionally, if doctors in Georgia were to perform an abortion past the estimated six-week threshold, they could face up to 99 years in prison, according to the Washington Post.
Since the start of 2019, other states such as Ohio, Alabama, Kentucky and Mississippi have passed similar laws.
While many women have been voicing their opinions on the recent laws and ideologies, so have other members of the scene including blink-182’s Mark Hoppus, SWMRS, Sharptooth, All Time Low's Alex Gaskarth and Anti-Flag.
