On January 21, 2017, hundreds of thousands of people gathered all over the world to protest and make their voices heard. The March itself started as a way for people to protect women’s reproductive rights and health, something that was in jeopardy the day Donald Trump stepped into office.

Since then, the Women’s March has grown and became something powerful. Men and women alike have marched to represent their missions and principles. The Women’s March is fighting, not only to protect the reproductive rights of women, but also to protect rights for the LGBTQIA community, civil rights, workers’ rights, and immigrants’ rights. The marchers are also giving a voice for the disabled, environmental justice, and an end to violence.

The current mission of the Women's March is to harness political power and for women everywhere to obtain their voice to stand for what they believe in. Those involved in the monumental movement are committed to ending oppression through nonviolent actions, dignity, and respect.

People from all walks of life have joined this movement to turn it into something truly exquisite. The Women’s March still occurs today and last January thousands of people joined to help make a better tomorrow.
