Tens Of Thousands Of Women March In Call To Action

Tens Of Thousands Of Women March In Call To Action

"A year after the Women's March on Chicago exceeded our wildest expectations, today's March on the Polls demonstrates that the voices of women and their allies are stronger than ever", the Women's March Chicago board said in a statement Saturday afternoon.

The protest was not affiliated with the organizers of the Women's March, and was more focused on criticisms of President Trump, while groups represented a diverse range of causes.

Organizers said the goal was to solidify the movement and use that clout in 2018 elections, which could shift the balance of power in Congress.

The choice was also to honor the victims of the mass shooting that killed 58 people last October, they said.

Once again the "Women's March Global", and on the anniversary of 2017 Women's March, coordinated protests took place in many cities in the USA with parallel rallies in Canada, Japan, Italy and other countries around the world under what was called the "Weekend of Women".

Rather than dwelling on the successful expansion of their cause, however, activists in Canada and overseas used the events to focus on the future. "But when I raise my hand I am aware of all the women who are still in silence, the women who are faceless. who don't have the images in our media that gives them a sense of self-worth to break their silence".

And Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, tweeting in both English and French, called the rallies "incredibly inspiring and motivating", adding, "We see you, we hear you".

The rally was kicked off by a Native American woman who reminded the audience that Las Vegas sits on historic native land and that Native American women face a disproportionately higher rate of murder compared to their peers.

"I'm asking all of you to be the team member for every woman in your life".

Some people estimated the crowd at approximately ten to twelve thousand. Here's a round-up of the best signs we spotted in the crowd.

The Women's March Became a Movement. What's Next?

"This is Idaho's future".

Three years ago she would have said definitely no.

Initial estimates suggest that at least 500,000 participants took to the streets in Washington, DC.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to turn out Saturday in cities across the Bay Area for a series of Women's Marches as part of a grassroots political movement to get more women into political office.

The group will march about one mile down Santa Clara Street to Arena Green East near the SAP Center for a rally with speakers, music and food. The hats were meant as a slight to misogynistic comments President Trump made in 2005 that surfaced during the election campaign. More marches were planned in cities on Sunday. At a protest in Kenyan capital of Nairobi, supporters demanded equality and tolerance.

An attendee listens as Cher speaks during the Women's March "Power to the Polls" voter registration tour launch on January 21, 2018, in Las Vegas.

A survivor of the mass shooting on October 1 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival also spoke to the crowd about her experience and the difficulties she has faced since the shooting that claimed 58 lives and affected hundreds more.

"We live in an alternate universe-it is so bad", said Althea Fusco, 67, who traveled to the city from upstate NY with two neighbors.

Midtown Manhattan flooded with protestors by Saturday afternoon.

In New York, scheduled speakers included Ashley Bennett, a Democrat who was elected Atlantic County, New Jersey, freeholder last November. And the sign I saw the most people gathering around to take pictures of was one that referred to the defeat of the Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.
