Subscribe to Ms. by February 20 to receive our Women’s March commemorative issue and join us in the fight ahead.
The Los Angeles organizing team put together a Women’s March PSA spotlighting people who come from all walks of life. For some, the march honored the legacies of their mothers—for others, it marked the beginning of their activism.
These Ms. readers and community members opened up to us about what theyre fighting for at the Womens March,. Why are you marching today?
I will march for free thought and creative expression and all the social movements they inspire.
“I will not be suckered into hatred. There is too much work to be done.”
It is clear we can’t have climate justice without gender justice. Gender equity is key to everyone’s ability to thrive in the face of climate change.
The union movement gives women choice, autonomy, financial stability and the ability to take care of ourselves. These are the cornerstones of building true equality in any society.
On January 21, millions of us will march around the world. It won’t fix everything, but it will remind us how powerful our actions and voices can be.
I march because as I grapple with the profound implications the rise of anti-choice politicians at the state and federal level will have on my community, I want to send a message that is loud and clear: We are not defeated and we are not going anywhere.
These things can no longer go on—not in Idaho, not in the United States, not anywhere in the world. This march is only the first step towards unifying our communities to create change from the grassroots level up.
