On January 21st, women from across this country and all over the world will stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families – recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country. The Women’s March on Washington, and hundreds of “sister marches,” join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore.
I MARCH BECAUSE:
- Sexual violence and violence at the hands of a loved one happen all day, every day, in this country, and I want a President who finds that unacceptable, not laughable.
- I believe in equality for all, not in protecting my own at the expense of others.
- Using manners and treating people with respect isn’t politically correct, it’s decent.
- Access to reproductive healthcare and quality education isn’t a right of the rich and shouldn’t be controlled by the religious right.
- Sexism is ever present and must be challenged.
- Of my children.
Why do you march?
