I attended the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday, January 21, 2017 – one day after Donald Trump took the oath of office as the 45th president of the United States.

I drove to Washington from Columbus, OH with a car full of nasty women – women endowed with steadfast conviction, fiery passion, steely resolve; women, unbowed, intent on being seen and heard and counted. Smart women. Successful women. Sincere women. Women who I am privileged to call my friends.

Each of these women marched for her own reasons.

I marched to support and defend

  • Women’s Rights
  • Civil Rights
  • Human Rights

and to advocate for

  • Social Justice
  • Climate Justice

I marched for and with Hillary Clinton because #ImStillWithHill, and I affirm that we are #StrongerTogether.

And so we all marched – together.

In our nation’s capital, we joined a sea of humanity – chanting, drumming, singing. Marching. The atmosphere was jubilant; the energy, palpable; the resistance, mighty.

We were seen.

We were heard.

We were counted.

And, we’ve only just begun.

Join us.
