Voices From the Women’s March on Seattle

January 21, 2017

On Saturday, January 21, 2017, the day after President Donald Trump was inaugurated, hundreds of thousands of men, women and children gathered for the Women’s March in more than 600 cities across America and around the world. They marched not only in protest of the new President of the United States, but in support of gender and reproductive rights. In what would register as one of the largest gatherings, more than 100,000 people took to the streets of downtown Seattle.

Hear from those who participated in these protests and what they hope will blossom from this act of civil defiance.
