What is your opinion on the Womens March on Washington Today?

  1. i am not involved in it, but my daughters are marching. I am a pro life person but each person has her own opinion. I am just curious about what your opinions are.

    The march has nothing to do with abortion specifically but had everything to do with pushing back against the uptick in bigoted, xenophobic, and misogynistic rhetoric and policy of legislators and the new POTUS.

    Women's rights are human rights
    Human rights are universal.

    A feminist group that is Pro-Life was specifically uninvited, just for that reason. I have nothing positive to say about it. Madonna and Ashley Judd spewing nothing but hatred eliminates anything positive any of the other women might be standing for, in my opinion.

    I attended the march in Lexington, Ky. It was VERY well attended. There were over 5,000 marchers representing all walks of life and religions. So glad I went and I hope elected officials are watching and listening because WE will be watching them!

    I attended the march in Lexington, Ky. Over 5,000 people participated. It was an uplifting experience. And seeing pictures from sister marches across the country and around the world certainly lifts my spirits!

    except for the unborn correct? If it had nothing to do with abortion then why were pro lifers not allowed to attend? These are mainly just old, ugly, bitter feminist rejects at these rally other than the lefties that like to burn cars and destroy property.

    Another Trump protest....yawn.

    Yawn to the biggest protest in US history? LOL. OK.

    Yesterday was a incredible and beautiful show of power and unity that was desperately needed in this country. I couldn't be more proud to be a woman today and hope this is only the first step in a incredible political movement. The fact that Trump held a press conference not to discuss this but to instead discuss how many people attended his inauguration compared to his tells you everything you need to know about the kind of 4 years we will be dealing with. I hope to see this continued kind of strength as we continue to battle for peoples rights across multiple ethnicities, backgrounds and cultures.

    You, my dear, are the reason we marched.

    What in heck were you watching, Fox news? The folks who turned at the rally I attended included men, women, toddlers, babies, the old, young and middle-aged.

    If you it makes you feel better to dismiss the protesters in the manner you described, so be it. But know it just isn't the truth.

    I understand truth is something the new administration has a problem with whenever it doesn't suit them. But when a falsehood is presented as truth, I WILL correct it.

    I thought it was a beautiful show of unity by people of all ages, gender identities, colors and ethnicities. In my local march there was no screening of ideology. It was peaceful and respectful. The police were doing traffic control and gave out many high fives.

    Given the politics you regularly express here, I'm sure you would find something about the march to which to object, regardless. I was at the march (DC) on Saturday, and I saw a group there carrying signs identifying themselves as "Pro-Life Democrats." They were there and expressing their views, same as everyone else who was there, no one was objecting or preventing them from doing so, and no one was hassling them about being there.
