The Women’s March on Washington was an amazing experience. We, as women, men, and children, got to speak our minds and tell the current administration that we will not be forgotten. We will not be oppressed. We are worth respect.
We are unsure of the numbers that attended the March on Washington, because we had no way to check the number of people. However many people showed up, it was an amazing and historic event, that none of us will ever forget.
That being said, there is still a lot to be desired. The march itself was not as inclusive to issues that affect women of color, women with disabilities, or really any women that weren't white and upper class.
Now, there was one big issue being brought up in articles immediately following the march. The transgender community was not represented, or frankly given space to be at the march. There were plenty of vagina-related signs and costumes, which isn’t what the march was supposed to be about. There was a lot of love, but ultimately we need to be more inclusive for all types of people. As we fight for unity and recognition, it’s important that we keep that in mind when we invite our brothers and sisters to fight alongside us. It’s important to make sure our voices are equally heard, and equally represented.
