The Los Altos-Mountain View branch of the American Association of University Women is scheduled to mark the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade with a virtual event 1-2:15 p.m. Jan. 22.

The landmark 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalized abortion, a ruling that was overturned last June. The AAUW program will focus on the next steps in the fight for reproductive rights.
