WOMEN'S MARCH 2018
WHAT WE ARE SAYING . . .
The sun was almost warm in New York, Saturday, January 20, 2018, as several hundred thousand of us participated in the Second Women’s March. It was so crowded that many of us had to walk up to 86th Street to even enter the march and the pictures from the sky showed streets full of people.
This massive demonstration of democratic ideals wasn’t just about women. Entire families with fathers and mothers, grandparents and even their pets came out to call for a more inclusive and equal society. We met people we had never known before and talked about how the future needed to be different than the past. We shared our memories, our hopes, and our dreams for an America that would live up to its promise.
