Women’s rights activists and others rallied in Washington D. C. on Saturday, where they expressed their support for President Donald Trump’s decision to officially declare the Womens March on the streets of the capital.
“This is what we’re here to do,” one protester said.
“It’s not just about the women, it’s about the men.
And if we can get a man to be here with us, then we can stop this horrible, terrible march.”
“We want to bring women into the streets, to make them feel comfortable.
We want to make sure we can make a change in the world.
We are not going to be silent,” another woman added.
A third woman added, “We need to get women’s rights.”
A number of women’s health and safety advocates also attended the march, including former president of the National Women’s Law Center Gloria Steinem.
“I believe that we must make a stand on this issue,” Steinem said.
The Women’s Liberation Movement is a social justice movement that seeks to end patriarchy and patriarchy-based violence.
“Women’s liberation is not only the right to reproductive choice, but also to reproductive rights,” the group said in a statement.
Steinem also said, “Women are more than just a set of uteruses and ovaries.
They are a body and a soul, and they are an inseparable part of who we are.”
“The march is a celebration of women.
It’s a celebration that all of us, including all of the men, are part of,” she added.
The march will end at the Washington Monument, where a group of marchers will march to the Capitol building.
The group will continue on to the Lincoln Memorial, where the Women and Girls United for Reproductive Choice march will continue.
The event has drawn many participants who came from as far away as California, New York, Illinois, Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.
The rally was originally scheduled to start at noon, but it was moved to noon.
