On Saturday, January 21, 2017 history was made. What was initially supposed to be just a march in Washington D.C., turned out to be the biggest inaugural protest taking place all over the world. Millions of people united together to voice their concerns towards the new president of the United States and his administration. Want to know what I find even more enlightening? It was mainly ran by woman! Okay, that may have been a little biased but let me tell you, although I’ve always loved being a woman – I have never felt MORE PROUD to be a woman than I did on January 21, 2017. To the team at Women’s March, you did THAT.
Below are a few of my favorite signs from the marches:
“It’s the lack of empathy that makes it very easy for us to plunge into wars” – Barack Obama

Can we all agree the Women’s March surely was an empowering event to be alive for and witness?

I’m awesome. That is all.
