The main protest was in Washington, D. Women’s March on Washington with many other marches taking place worldwide. During „the first hours of the first meeting for what would become the Women’s March,“ Mallory and Perez allegedly put forward a debunked antisemitic conspiracy theory regarding Jews and the slave trade. No one who was in the room spoke about it for almost two years. According to The New York Times, opposition to and defiance of Trump infused the protests, which were sometimes directly called anti-Trump protests. Organizers stated that they were „not targeting Trump specifically“ and that the event was „more about being proactive about women’s rights“.
Planned Parenthood partnered with the march by providing staff and offering knowledge related to planning a large-scale event. Vanessa Wruble, co-founder, brought on Tamika D. Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour to serve as National Co-Chairs alongside Bob Bland. Seven women coordinated marches outside the U. The organizers also addressed environmental issues: „We believe that every person and every community in our nation has the right to clean water, clean air, and access to and enjoyment of public lands. We believe that our environment and our climate must be protected and that our land and natural resources cannot be exploited for corporate gain or greed—especially at the risk of public safety and health.
By January 20, 2017, 222,000 people had RSVP’d as going to the Washington, D. In late December, organizers announced that over 100 organizations would provide assistance during the march and support the event across their social media platforms. By January 18, more than 400 organizations were listed as „partners“ on the March’s official website. On January 13, event organizers granted the anti-abortion feminist group New Wave Feminists partnership status. But after the organization’s involvement was publicized in The Atlantic, it was removed from the partners page on the march’s website. While organizers had originally expected over 200,000 people, the march ended up drawing between 440,000 to 500,000 in Washington D. 4,600,000 people participated in the United States and up to 5 million did worldwide.
The large crowds enabled Washington’s Subway to break 1,000,000 passengers for only the second time in its history. The official list of speakers included Gloria Steinem, America Ferrera and Scarlett Johansson. Steinem commented „Our constitution does not begin with ‚I, the President. It begins with, ‚We, the People.
I am proud to be one of thousands who have come to Washington to make clear that we will keep working for a democracy in which we are linked as human beings, not ranked by race or gender or class or any other label. But if we commit to what aligns us, if we stand together steadfast and determined, then we stand a chance of saving the soul of our country. Johansson called for long-term change: „Once the heaviness began to subside, an opportunity has presented itself to make real long-term change, not just for future Americans, but in the way we view our responsibility to get involved with and stay active in our communities. Let this weight not drag you down, but help to get your heels stuck in. The youngest presenter at the Washington D. 6-year-old Sophie Cruz, said, „Let us fight with love, faith, and courage so that our families will not be destroyed,“ and ended her speech saying, „I also want to tell the children not to be afraid, because we are not alone. There are still many people that have their hearts filled with love.
Let’s keep together and fight for the rights. Alicia Keys performed at the rally saying, „We are mothers. We are entrepreneurs, doctors, leaders of industry and technology. Across the United States, there were a total of 408 planned marches.
