Women's March In Washington Will Outnumber Attendees For Inauguration
Trump's inauguration was not as well attended as recent presidential inaugurations. The Women's March on Washington is estimated to be around 500,000. The plan was for 200,000 marchers but the issue of Women's Rights is much broader than expected; it will dwarf the attendance at the inauguration. However, it is not primarily an Anti-Trump rally; it is a demonstration of solidarity among women who will continue to support their rights under an administration that is led by a president who has demonstrated that his interest in women is rather restricted to his access to certain aspects of their anatomy. He made an enemy out of a smart and energized group of women. The war has only started.
