Women's March 2018: Where, when and why

Women's March 2018: Where, when and why

Since the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump has had sharply lower approval ratings among women than among men. Their efforts have been bolstered by the #MeToo movement, recent special election victories and an inspirational speech last week by Oprah Winfrey.

And in light of Trump's one-year anniversary in the White House on January 20, there will be protests once more.

Millions across the world took to the streets on the anniversary of President Donald Trump's inauguration to march in opposition of his policies, as well as sexual assault and harassment, and in support of women's rights and the #MeToo movement.

It's hard to believe it's already been a year since Trump took office-even though it feels like we've all aged at least 20 years, judging by our collective exhaustion and the gray hairs I've suddenly developed.

Organizers say they're fighting for basic rights for women, immigrants and others who are under attack.

In Philadelphia, organizers of the city's 2018 Women's March faced criticism from activists for agreeing to work closely with the local police. In our group, 95 percent of our leadership team are women.

Until then, we will remain unapologetic about positioning Black women in the women's movement, galvanizing our political power, and challenging any woman who may be ignorant about why it's necessary for all women to fight for "our" issues. I adore them and need them more and more every day.

The Santa Cruz Women's March drew 18,000 participants a year ago, according to organizers.

Stephanie Schriock, the group's president, said the number of women running for office is soaring.

She also urged people to show the "same power in the voting booth this year" ahead of November's mid-term elections.

"The most influential people in my life have always been women", she wrote. "And when we all came together last time, we had the power and it's the women - the women have given us the power".

Elsewhere around the US, people congregated in Houston; Richmond, Virginia; and Rhode Island. The Republican Party is also likely to have significant financial resources in 2018.

But turnout is unlikely to equal 2017's, organisers said.

As the marchers headed toward the White House, the chants were hardly cheering on the Dow: "Hey Hey!"

In 2017, almost 350,000 people rode BART trains on the day of the Women's March.

Fuelled by anger over Trump's divisive policies and boasts of sexual misconduct, hundreds of thousands of people - including about 1,000 in Victoria - organized marches around the world and used the events to proclaim messages of inclusion, equality and empowerment.

In Zurich, Alexandra Dufresne, a lawyer from New Haven, Conn., now living in Switzerland, asked compatriots at Saturday's march their opinion of Trump - and they apologized.

"I think when women see visible women's leadership, bold and fierce, going up against a very racist, sexist, misogynist administration, it gives you a different level of courage that you may not have felt you had", she said.

"I never would have guessed my mental health depended on these people", she said. "These deep dark days have really brought the best out of women". Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev., became the first woman to represent Nevada in the U.S. Senate and the first Latina elected to serve in that body.

"This isn't about Trump", she said.
