WHY ARE THE WOMEN MARCHING?
White women and women of color, old and young, are marching in Washington, D.C. and other cities.There are also men marching in support of the same objectives. Why are they marching? Women have the right to vote, they can work and retain their wages, own property, and inherit..'What more do they want ?' A traditional conservative might ask. I suggest journalists ask the question. Here are some quotes.
One says she is marching to "show the Trump administration, they have no mandate to take actions that are not what the majority want. Another says, "I am marching to ensure that issues important to women are given voice: pro choice and maintaining Roe v. Wade, better education, climate change legislation..."
"The march allows people to stand together in solidarity to support and protect the rights, safety, respect and equality of all people. ."
"All women deserve access to health care."
"Media who want to see the March as divisive are taking the easy road. The March is a stand for the expansion of women's and other minority rights (not a diminuation) and for us all to be treated as equals financially, socially and physically. Trump's team seems to want to roll that back (viewing it-like many men-as freedoms "bestowed" on women or others BY white men)-it's wrong thinking all around."
