What started out as a march on D.C. for tens of thousands of women has expanded to a Women’s March on Washington. The date is set for Saturday, January 21, the day after the inauguration of President Elect Donald Trump.
What Is the Purpose of the March?
According to a New York Times article released on November 11, the purpose of the march was to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump as commander-in-chief and convey women, femme, trans, gender non-conforming and other feminists’ disapproval of the new president and his values. It was also an effort to make demands for the welfare of women and a non-violent protest for women’s rights.
Another article published by CNN on November 12, quoted one of the march’s organizers, Fontaine Pearson as saying that the purpose of the march was not to protest against the President or the legitimacy of the election. Its purpose is to focus attention on women’s issues such as workplace discrimination and sexual assault. The scope of the march goes beyond election support for Hillary Clinton and hopes to change the political-economic-socio landscape for women by demanding equal rights.
The march will start at the Lincoln Memorial and go to the White House.
