The Protest By Women is Too Huge to Dismiss as a One Hit Wonder.

I must say, I was STUNNED to see on a restaurant T.V. today (tuned to CNN), that millions of women ALL OVER THE WORLD were protesting! It's apparent that some very strong emotions, feelings, and convictions are in play. Probably dissatisfactions that have been building up for months...or years?

This article does a good job of showing the extent of global protests..
www.msn.com... ntp

But it doesn't do a good job of explaining the WHY and WHAT and WHEN. So I'm starting this thread to ask WOMEN (and Men, & "Other"), who identify with, and understand the overall protest movement, to PLEASE chime in, and personally share with the global ATS community:

1. WHY are you upset enough to take time out of your busy life to protest?

2. WHAT are you hoping to accomplish?

3. WHEN will you say, "Hey, our protesting worked! My sacrifices were worth it!"

Thank-you In Advance!

It made me so sad today to see thousands of women supporting the right to murder their unborn children.
It breaks my heart to a million pieces.
Our country has allowed the murder of innocents to become the norm and accepted.
True, real evil exists.

Its just politics and large scale mind games. Like the protesters smashing and burning these are just trying to get some spotlight away from Trump, smear, act as if, suggest ect. Just remember in Bill Clintons case we never saw this sort of disruption by the fems. Many of them use prosthetic male parts anyway.

There's an official platform, you know. Here.


Just a few of the principles:

“Accountability and justice for police brutality” and “[dismantling] the gender and racial inequities within the criminal justice system”

Freedom from sexual violence

Ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution that would guarantee equal protection based on gender

Affirming that all domestic and caretaking work is work, even if unpaid, and that women — especially women of color — bear the brunt of that burden

“The right to organize and fight for a living minimum wage” for all workers, labor protections for undocumented and migrant workers, and “solidarity with sex workers’ rights movements”

Comprehensive reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, and immigrant and refugee rights



As far as why so many are marching? Because being silent about these things is just wrong. I have several friends who went (one flew to Washington) and I would have went to the Portland one here if not for work schedules. Having a voice and using it is just about the only power left. Staying silent is not an option.

a reply to: carewemust Trump has been POTUS for about a day. Are the protests supposed to be preemptory just in case Trump does something to disappoint them?

As a direct response to the wording of the title, I suggest that must maybe, some of those women would start to rethink their wasted anger at "old white men" and question their current position as being as blatantly sexist as you can get.

Maybe not.

While Trump was the focus, Congress may be the target.

Thank you for starting this thread. I have had a lot of questions to all the opposition with this election and want to hear some honest discussion not just yelling. Examples, not just what the media screams.

I saw a woman today on stage at the march who was wearing a shirt that had "abortion" printed all over. WTF is all I can say. I am pro choice, but promoting such a thing confuses me.

It's disgusting. I get certain circumstances but I thought they were the compassionate party?
