On January 21, 2017, American women united in Washington, DC for the Women’s March on Washington. They stood together in solidarity with their partners and children for the protection of their rights, safety, health, and families, shouting that their vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of every country.
The past election cycle in USA has insulted and threatened many of immigrants, Muslims, people who are identified as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, and survivors of sexual assault. As a result, women have decided to stand up for their rights, support each other and fight against any racism.
Two million people marched in the historic Women’s March on Washington on Saturday in a wonderful show of protest on the first full day of the Trump administration. Celebrities and speakers included singers Alicia Keys, Madonna and Janelle Monáe, and actors Emma Watson and Ashley Judd.
The March was said to take place only in Washington, but women everywhere around the world stood up, not only for American women’s rights, but for all human rights.
Here’s the best shots and signs from all over the world;
Millions of strong women stood up for the human rights to show the world who rules it! Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.
