Yesterday, around 100,000 women, men, and children marched through the streets of London, in single-figure temperatures, to affirm that women’s rights are human rights.
Millions more marched in at least 15 other cities and countries around the world.
We marched in protest at the US presidential election of Donald Trump — a politically-inexperienced, self-confessed groper of women, and frequent speaker of misogynist, homophobic, racist, and anti-environment remarks — over the much more accomplished — and also female — Hillary Clinton.
We marched for women’s reproductive rights; for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people; we marched for the rights of people of all races and religions; we marched for mother nature. We marched so the women of today and tomorrow will feel empowered enough to know that they can do anything, and be anything, they damn well want.
