January 20, 2018 people from all across the nation and the world took to the streets to march in unison. As one, powerful voice once again for equal rights for women, and against the Trump Administration.

It is the one year anniversary since the first march took place – and it is also the one year anniversary since Donald Trump was sworn into office as the President of the United States. The first women’s march in 2017 yielded an estimated 3 or 4 million in attendance, crushing expectations and igniting the Women’s March movement. It was hailed as, “likely the largest single-day demonstration in recorded U.S. history.” by the Washington Post.
This year the mission of the Women’s March is to promote increased access to reproductive healthcare services, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, ending violence against minority groups and many other important causes. Following the national #metoo movement over sexual misconduct – and after one year of oppressive and racist words and policies by the Trump Administration – this year has the potential to be even larger.
