Why we flew to Washington, D.C. to take part in the Women’s March

Some called it an anti-Trump protest, others a women’s rights demonstration. What it ended up being was a movement.

The 2017 Women's March on Washington, D.C., on Jan. 21 was one of hundreds of marches around the world to support women's rights, immigration reform, health care reform, the environment, LGBTQ righs, racial justice, freedom of religion and in protest to Donald Trump's misogynistic statements and positions. The Washington protest attracted 550,000 and 4.8 million worldwide protesters. It was considered the largest one-day protest in U.S. history. Photograph courtesy of Voice of America
