Unite Against the War on Women

Nashville recording artist Kathryn Scheldt performed songs co-written with Frye Gaillard at an April 28 rally in Montgomery, AL, sponsored by Unite Against the War on Women. The Alabama rally was one of nearly fifty held in cities across the nation, as women protested state and national assaults – mostly in the form of legislation by Republicans – aimed at limiting women’s health care options and undermining the notion of equal pay for equal work. “I’m honored that songs I’ve had a hand in writing were sung on this occasion,” said Gaillard. “Kathryn is a great singer and songwriter who understands the journey that women have made in her lifetime and does not want to see that progress reversed. As the father of two daughters, the issue is personal for me also.”
