Women’s March On Washington, D.C
On Friday, January 20 in Washington D.C., Donald Trump will be sworn in as the nation’s 45th president. The next day, a demonstration that aims to bring a million women to the nation’s capital will formally protest his inauguration as commander-in-chief.
The Women’s March on Washington on January 21 could be one of the biggest D.C. demonstrations on the National Mall in a very long time. Not only has the number of people who have said they’re attending gotten closer to 200,000, but a whopping 1,200 Women’s March on Washington buses reportedly have permits to park at RFK Stadium, compared to just 200 for the inauguration itself.
According to the women’s March on Washington organizers, they will be marching in the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.
