On January 18, women and men will once again take to the streets to protest many of the policies of this administration. The Women’s March will also kick off a crucial election year. We’ve seen the polls and listened to the pundits who say that this election will be decided by young voters, centrists and independents, and most importantly by women. On November 3, 2020, women may be the most powerful force for political change. The way women are treated in society is a top voting issue for Democratic women voters.
Why are women and men marching? Primarily to express alarm and disagreement with policies that have made it easier for employers to discriminate against women in the workplace, that have rolled back protections for women’s reproductive rights, cut programs designed to reduce domestic violence, and restricted access to birth control.
They are also marching to protest the willful destruction of other rights including civil rights, immigrant rights, worker’s rights and a dangerous roll back of environmental protections and affordable health care.
I hope that all of you will join the resistance on January 18 at 10:00 at Laishley Park and force the media and our government leaders to take notice.
