The Women's March on Washington was on January 21, 2017. Trump's election as President lead to this event. The goals were to send a message that women's rights are importat and there should be equality at all levels of leadership in society.
Men and women both marched. People in the following groups also marched: immigrants, people with diverse religion, LGBTQIA people, Native people, black and brown people, and people with disabilities.
The following people were involed in the event: Tamika D. Mallory, Bob Bland, Carmen Perez, Linda Sarsour, Janaye Ingram, and Breanne Bulter. They organized the whole event. They had to get the right permits and make sure the march was legal. Many arguements were started because of it. They just kept planning and organized leadership so everyone know what to do.
There are many similarities between the original March On Washington and The Women's March including: WHO- both done by people without equality. WHAT- both marched. WHERE- both in Washington, D.C.. WHY- both wanted to solve the problem of inequality. HOW- by gathering as a large group to show they matter.
