signs - Seattle Women's March

Women’s March, a reflection

The Women’s March on 21 January 2017 was only the second time that I have “marched in protest.” The first was in 2003 to protest the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

News stories and inspiration

Perhaps the most inspirational moment post-March this week was watching Full Frontal With Samantha Bee on Wednesday night when she featured MILCK and the George Washington University Sirens singing a cappella. #iCantKeepQuiet

Personal reflection

I marched in Seattle on Jan 21 to honor my mother, to continue the work of Susan B. Anthony in our slow crawl towards equality, to support those deprived of power by genes or the roll of the birth die.

I marched because the man who has assumed the mantle of the presidency overwhelmingly lost the popular vote. I marched as a reminder that his policies do not have an electoral mandate.
This is only my second march (2003 Iraq War was the first). Unfortunately, it will probably not be my last.
