How a Women’s March Once Saved the World [Slideshow]

*Disclaimer – If you have not heard the song “Keep Your Head Up” by Tupac, do yourself and society a favor and please listen. Listen twice, maybe three times. Learn the lyrics, why not?

 

AN ESTIMATED 3 MILLION PEOPLE HAVE MARCHED WORLDWIDE

 

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, NEW YORK CITY, BOSTON, PHILADELPHIA, LOS ANGELES, SAN JOSE, CHICAGO, DENVER, ATLANTA, SEATTLE, ST. LOUIS, LONDON, PARIS, BERLIN, TOKYO

 

This weekend, I was one of the 500,000+ who attended the Women’s March in NYC, an experience I will always remember. I’ve been to sold-out football games, holiday parades, and music festivals but nothing compared to the atmosphere and importance behind this march. With such an amazing opportunity, it’s tough to express in words how inspiring it felt to take part in, therefore I included a slideshow below of photos I took throughout the day.

 

NYC Women's March

This is where we stand, the first weekend in what molds our futures along with those of our friends and loved ones. We are what democracy looks like. We are what America looks like. If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. It is eye-opening to side with a million+ badass woman and their supporters who will not stop because women rights = human rights. Stay nasty, stay resilient.

 

 

Never, ever give up. Never lose hope. We’re fighting for our sisters and mothers and our daughters — we’re also fighting for our fathers and our sons and for people who can’t fight for themselves.

Rep. John Lewis tells the crowd in their continued fight against injustice
