Another Day, Another March: Women's March

It’s officially been a year since the Women’s March took place in Washington D.C. where over 500,000 protestors marched peacefully and chanted inspiring words back in 2017. Earlier this year the second march took place on January 20th.

Thousands gathered nationwide for yet again an inspiring moment in American history a moment when men, women, and children march side by side together spreading awareness,  marching for women’s rights, social justice, and equality for all communities.

State Rep Victoria Neave joined the march and delivered a speech with Rhetta Bowers, Chair of the Dallas Women's March, along with representative from Planned Parenthood, The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), Texas Coalition of Black Democrats, Mothers Against Police Brutality, and others.

The march took place Saturday morning at 10AM, it started at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church and ended at Pike Park. As usual there were several ‘Anti-Women’s March’ speakers who spoke out about the marchers. Toni Lahren, a Republican spokesperson for FOX’s Insider gave her thoughts stating in a article “Your so-called 'women’s march' isn’t about standing up or fighting for women at all,”  (FOX NEWS/ Tomi Lahren Blasts the 'Anti-Women's March': The 'Mean Girls' Need to Take a Look in the Mirror)

Her statement was made in response to women marching the streets spreading awareness. It might be hard to believe, but most ‘Anti-Women’s March’ protestors have never actually been to a women’s march (from my perspective), but instead watch from the desk of their home computers and make vulgar comments.

As someone who has spent the last year or two protesting, I can say proudly, that the protest was a great experience. I’ve learned so much and minus the seemingly toxic language (curse words) I might add it was said quite well, not with hate, not with idiotic dialogue, but with empowering  courage for a better future.
