Just a day after the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of America, a new event will be inaugurated Saturday as a mark of protest against the new administration.
The Women’s March on Washington (WMW) has planned to organize a rally and a subsequent march in America’s political capital Washington where thousands of protesters are expected to raise their voice against Trump’s hateful rhetoric.
“The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us and our communities are hurting and scared. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear,” WMW stated with reference to the U.S. presidential election.
It further states that immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, and survivors of sexual assault have their misgivings about the Trump Administration.
“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,” WMW asserted.
It was also clarified that the Women’s March on Washington is for any person, regardless of gender or gender identity, who believes women’s rights are human rights.
