British women's activist Kelly-Jay Keen-Minshull organized and spoke at the "Let Women Speak" rally last Oct. 26, with the purpose of reclaiming women's voices from the transgender and gender ideology movement. However, the event was marred by opposition and hostility from protesters who denounced her as a trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF).
At the beginning of the rally, protesters stood around the top of the amphitheater where Keen-Minshull was speaking. They carried transgender pride flags and signs that read "no TERFs in T town," "crash the cis-tem" and "trans women are women." Some of the protesters came from a school located near the rally's venue.
Keen-Minshull was met with shouts of "no hate here" from the protesters, which rally attendees replied to with "let them speak."
"The U.S. is failing to uphold the First Amendment at the behest of this odious and most insidious quasi-religious cult called transgenderism," said the British activist. "Women must be protected to speak about the erasure of our spaces, our rights and the words we use to define ourselves."
The protesters did not stop their harassment of the rally attendees, forcing the event to move to another area. The event ended abruptly following pro-trans hecklers resorting to multiple acts of violence.
Keen-Minshull recounted that one of the participants, a middle-aged lesbian, "got her fingers crushed by a man’s bare hands." She added that the perpetrator "literally got her hand in his and crushed it and broke her fingers." Footage posted by independent journalist Andy Ngo appeared to attest to this – with two young men targeting a woman and then running away after the victim shouted for help.
Before ending the event, the activist addressed the crowd: "If there are any police here, there's a man in yellow that said he's [going to] kill someone. We aren't going to let any more people be assaulted, and the police aren't coming."
Keen-Minshul explained the rationale of the "Let Women Speak" rally during an interview with Fox News.
"Women are being silenced through tech, so we're taking our voices back to the public square," she said. "Many of those women [who attended] lost their jobs, they lost their livelihoods, they might have lost their children to this pernicious cult of transgenderism, and they just want to talk about it."
The British activist also blasted gender ideology and transgenderism as a "dishonest narrative that anybody can choose their biological sex," warning that "the broken bodies of children cannot be repaired once they start on this journey of puberty blockers, cross sex hormones and surgeries."
"I think people across the country have got to wake up pretty damn quick, join their school boards, and start talking about this to anybody and everybody as much as humanly possible to try and stop it."

Keen-Minshul remarked that she was "far more afraid of the things that are happening" than the possible consequences of her actions. "Staying silent is really not an option anymore. I would be much more afraid of doing that," she said.
The abrupt end of her event in Washington followed the cancellation of the rally's leg in Portland. The event, originally scheduled for Oct. 25, was scrapped after Antifa members in the city threatened violence.
"I was alerted to multiple threats of violence against me, as well as a local principal lying and saying I had links to the far right," Keen-Minshul told the Post Millenial.
"I am relatively well known by name and sight to these violent, unhinged ideologues. The police have confirmed that they are too short-staffed to be reliable."
