You probably know a woman who is marching the day after Inauguration Day.
Hundreds of local women are planning to join one of many of the busloads of protesters organizing here to participate in the March on Washington, the Womens March in New York City and over 300 “sister marches” across the country.
“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,” is in the mission statement posted on the March’s website.
The League of Women Voters of Larchmont-Mamaroneck is urging local citizens to join the organization and “join the march in support of our democratic form of government.”
Ximena Francella is planning to march in New York.
“I am adding my voice to the thousands of women here and around the world that we will stand up to hate and intolerance. Women are the change agents for ourselves, families and communities,” she said.
In New York, the march begins at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, 833 1st Avenue at East 48th St, and ends at Trump Towers, marching at staggered times, beginning at 11:00 am.
