As reported here and elsewhere, the Women’s March on Washington is shaping up to be an historic event, with approximately 200,000 women (and men) marching on the nation’s capital on January 21 to stand up for women’s rights, and against the misogynistic policies espoused by President-elect Trump.
While the Washington, D.C., march will be the largest Women’s March event, if you cannot make it to D.C., not to worry: according to the official Women’s March website, “sister” marches will be held in all 50 states and in 40 global cities.
“This is an unprecedented, organic and viral grassroots global movement that is growing everyday. More than 500,000 people have already committed to march all over the country and the world in just a matter of weeks.”
All told, approximately 300 marches will take place word-wide, with about one million people participating.
