What a turn out from people around the world for the Women’s March on Washington. I love the idea that all other marches were known as sister marches. Apart from what have been described as Madonna’s f-bombs, I haven’t heard a bad word said about the events themselves.
However, there were lots of angry people on the radio complaining ahead of the events. They were all saying the same thing like it was a mantra: he’s been democratically elected, get over it.
I think the critics missed the point: marchers were exercising their democratic right to express their opinions. I’ve met people from around the world who are too frightened to show disagreement or express an opinion for fear of the consequences for them and their families.
I felt a massive sense of pride for those thousands (millions?) who mirrored the marchers of Washington. Check out the video at the bottom of the Women’s March on Washington’s homepage.
