NEW YORK (AP) -- Hundreds of protesters have marched in New York City against what they say are setbacks to equal rights and reproductive rights for women.
Saturday's march against the "war on women" was one of dozens around the country.
Protesters marched from Washington Square down Broadway to Foley Square.
They chanted "Not the church, not the state, women must control their fate."
Brenda Reiss says she was taking part in the protest because of efforts in several states to restrict access to abortion and contraception. She says women "will not be shoved back in the kitchen barefoot and pregnant."
Protesters included actress Martha Plimpton, star of Fox TV's "Raising Hope."
Plimpton tweeted that it was "a beautiful day for yelling at the government."
Police reported no arrests.
