Viola Davis speaks to 'Me too' moment at LA Women's March

The event will commemorate the one-year anniversary of last year's march, so it will take place on Sunday.

Supporters swarmed the streets of 250 cities across the United States on Saturday in defense of women's rights as the political crises of the past year rose to the surface in a wave of sleazy politicians, violated immigration rights and families torn asunder.

"The only way we're going to make a change is if we commit to change", Goldberg said during the march in NY.

"I believe in women's rights, " Stocks said, "and Trump is going in the complete opposite direction".

Messmer was a state legislator when she attended the 2017 march in Portsmouth.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau offered assurances that equality and women's rights will remain priorities for his administration.

"We are here as women to say we're not going to take it any more". On his inauguration, angry Americans staged demonstrations around the country to express their disdain for Trump. Millions of people around the world marched during last year's rallies, and many on Saturday thought about all that's happened in the past year. Women's March is a women-led movement providing intersectional education on a range of issues and creating entry points for new grassroots activists and organizers to engage in their local communities through trainings, outreach programs and events.

The rallies also laid the groundwork for the recent movement that brought a reckoning for powerful men accused of sexual misconduct, Sarsour said.

Boo Geyer, organizer of a rally in Vancouver, said the message has already begun to reach a wider audience.

Syrian Kurdish YPG says Turkish strikes kill nine
The regime has spoken out against the YPG's autonomous rule but has also lambasted Turkey's operations in Syria. But Erdogan accused the United States of not keeping its past promises that the YPG would clear out of Manbij.

While I can't be at the march in Chicago today, just know that I will be voting for candidates that truly want change and will listen to all voices in America. not just a select few voices. "And now women from all different economic or gender and racial spectrums are talking together and realizing that it's a problem that universally affects everybody".

As the New York Times (paywall) has reported, there are now two large national groups running women's march and women's march-adjacent events in the US.

"I think it's really important to march last year and this year", she said.

The strapline for Las Vegas is "Power to the Polls", created to drive national voter registration and maximize women's involvement in the 2018 midterm elections, in which a record number of women are standing for election. Co-founder Vanessa Wruble told CNN that the group chose to branch off to focus on electing Democrats in red states during the 2018 midterm elections.

Women's March San Francisco: Saturday, Jan. 20 from 11:30 a.m.to 3:30 p.m.

The group will march about one mile down Santa Clara Street to Arena Green East near the SAP Center for a rally with speakers, music and food.

This second march seemed to take on a new importance, as people in the streets in major cities registered attendees to vote and people spoke of their responsibility as a member of a constituency.

"My call out to each of you with privilege is to use your privilege to lift up those behind you".
