Women’s March on Washington in pics
Then on Saturday, in what amounted to a counterinauguration, the speakers, performers and marchers proclaimed allegiance to a profoundly different vision of the nation. They voiced determination to protect an array of rights that they believe Mr. Trump threatens, and that they thought only recently were secure.
“Thank you for understanding that sometimes we must put our bodies where our beliefs are,” Gloria Steinem, the feminist icon and an honorary chairwoman of the march, told those gathered in Washington. “Pressing ‘send’ is not enough.” – [The New York Times]
We posted pictures of the Women’s March in New York City, and now here’s a set of the Women’s March on Washington which drew some 500,000 peaceful protestors to the nation’s capital. Check out the gallery above.
