On January 20, the 45th president of the United States will be inaugurated.
On January 21, women across the nation will unite to send a him message on his first day in office.
The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.
The Women’s March on Washington is gearing up to be one of the country’s largest demonstrations. But you don’t have to travel all the way to D.C. to join the movement. There are over 600 “sister marches” planned for the same day across the U.S., including one right here in Pittsburgh.
