Donald Trump – Women’s March Biggest Protest In History
Last Friday, Donald Trump took office as the 45th President of the United States of America and, as promised, women took to Washington, D.C. yesterday to march in protest of Trump. Not only did they take to D.C. … women across the entire country -and other parts of the world- ended up protesting in solidarity, and the numbers reached over 1,000,000 protesters!
Here are some of the highlights from the biggest event that took place in D.C.:
- In D.C., women’s activist Gloria Steinem spoke, stating, “We are here and around the world for a deep democracy that says we will not be quiet, we will not be controlled, we will work for a world in which all countries are connected. God may be in the details, but the goddess is in connections. We are at one with each other, we are looking at each other, not up. No more asking daddy.”
- Madonna also was present in D.C., telling the massive crowd that, “Let’s march together through this darkness and with each step know that we are not afraid, that we are not alone, that we will not back down, that there is power in our unity and that no opposing force stands a chance in the face of true solidarity.” She also gave a big “f**k” you to “detractors that insist this march will never add up to anything.”
- Ashley Judd also read a poem that resonated with the crowd called Nasty Woman from 19-year-old poet Nina Donovan that featured the line, “I am a nasty woman. Not as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheetoh dust.”
Regardless of where you stand on the political fence, it’s clear the women of our country wanted their voices heard, and they certainly were.
