Demonstrators show out for women’s rights, equality
By Bryan Ramos
illions across the nation filled the streets Saturday for the Women’s March 2018, standing up for women’s rights and equality Saturday. The women-led movement began last year in opposition of President Donald Trump to protest the history of oppressive and unfair laws and treatment towards women.
The Women’s March in Washington launched a movement across the nation on the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s inauguration as 300 sister marches took place in cities across the country. 600,000 organized in Los Angeles, 300,000 in Chicago, 200,000 in New York and tens of thousands in other cities, including Austin and Brownsville, as men, women and children alike made their voices heard, presence felt, and let the world know #TogetherWeRise.
About 200 demonstrators gathered in Brownsville at Washington Park celebrating the anniversary of the march and Roe v. Wade ruling.
The Women’s March’s mission is “to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change. Women’s March is a women-led movement providing intersectional education on a diverse range of issues and creating entry points for new grassroots activists & organizers to engage in their local communities through trainings, outreach programs and events. Women’s March is committed to dismantling systems of oppression through nonviolent resistance and building inclusive structures guided by self-determination, dignity and respect,” according to its website.
