Women in this day and age and especially in America have it just as good if not more so then men. In a lot of cases they have more options to them in life and in academic life in jobs and in a lot of other places.
This whole women are oppressed and second class citizens is a myth especially in the USA. But who knows what there protesting and why on Trump being president, they are probably some months to late on it being relevant, and they are and even that link you posted was not really clear on anything.
Actually the most fair way would be to allow for each person to decide for themselves. Even State by State law is still forcing some against their will to comply unless everyone in a state agrees which is highly unlikely. Allowing each person to make the choice on their own is the most fair and equal to go. It's that simple really. Which is what Pro-Choice is. It simply allows each person to choose on their own behalf. Nobody is made to do anything. Pretty simple.
As for your excuses for how powerful men sometimes act, I think you missed what I was saying and are also assuming I'm too naive to know BS when I hear it. So I'll just dismiss most of what you said at the start of your post. No offense.

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..
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!"
People can live where they want and still be able to choose for themselves what to do with themselves without bothering anyone else.
