On the first day of Donald Trump’s inauguration, people took the streets for Women’s Marches in what became the largest day of protest in U.S. history to speak out against the sexist, racist, anti-LGBTQ and Islamophobic new president. Since then, Women’s Marches have become an annual show of resistance. This year, activists organizing for the march have faced several challenges, but in many cities are working hard to build the marches and reflect a growing grassroots resistance that need to be built upon—local struggles to defend our clinics and reproductive rights, the working-class women at McDonalds and Google standing up to sexual harassment on the job in strikes, and the international struggles being wages by women from Argentina to Ireland and India and beyond.
The International Socialist Organization is joining other socialists, feminists and labor activists and others in contingents at the marches in several cities across the country. Come join us.
