Hundreds of Thousands of Women Plan to March on Washington in January 2017

Hundreds of Thousands of Women Plan to March on Washington in January 2017


Nov 14, 2016

In the aftermath of the 2016 Presidential election results, protestors and petition signers were ready to speak out in whatever way they could. From signs saying "Not My President" to "Love Trumps Hate," those who were unhappy with the outcome took to the streets, demanding change, and refusing to be silenced.

Though nearly a week has passed since the outcome was announced, the foreseeable future — with the official electoral vote announced in December and the inauguration in January — will be a noisy one filled with ongoing reactions.

Among those we can name is a "Women's March on Washington," a mass Facebook event where invites were sent to hundreds of thousands of individuals. Those who plan to attend will do one thing come the new year: participate in a (hopefully) peaceful march in Washington D.C. come January 21, 2017 — the day after President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration.

With more than 50 pages dedicated to recruiting guests from each of the states, the hosts are determined to bring everyone together by coordinating an "inclusive march" for all who support women's rights.
