With the 1 year anniversary of the Women’s March, as well as its second anniversary … I thought talking about the movement was the right way to go.
January 21st was the first ever worldwide protest, to advocate legislation and policies regarding human rights and other issues, including women’s rights, immigration, healthcare, reproductive rights, the natural environment, LGBTQ rights, racial equality, freedom of religion, and workers’ rights.
The first planned protest was in Washington, D.C., and is known as the Women’s March on Washington.
According to organizers it was meant to “send a bold message to the new US administration on the first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights”.
With a current leader in US that seem to do everything in his power to be-little women and their rights (not equal already if you ask me) many, many people (not just women) believed it was about time to (like our grandmothers before us) stand for what they believed in.
And so, finally, this generation is ready to fight again … fighting against losing our rights as much as getting equal rights (since not equal to begin with), fighting against any type of discriminations. Yup that’s right, when WE ‘women‘ fight, we do not just fight for ourselves we fight for everyone that deserves it.
