Women's March 2017 Significance
The Women’s March of 2017 signifies a pivotal moment for the U.S.
Intentionally scheduled for the day after Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States, women and men across the globe gathered in major cities to make their voices heard.
The march is a powerful demonstration that women and men will not be silenced or accept any action that hinders women’s rights.
Because our new president has continually talked negatively about women’s reproductive rights, immigrants, and those who have disabilities, people are worried about our future as country. And we should be.
Trump, who is now a representative of the people of our country, has continually spoken about women in derogatory terms, without significant repercussions. He has spoken about females as if we are objects and our sole purpose is to serve men.
Trump has won the position of president on a platform of exclusion and negativity, and hundreds of thousands of demonstrators are proving they do not want a divided America. They have wanted and want an equal America, in which everyone in our melting pot valued.
Demonstrators chanted, held signs, and spoke about their discontent with our new president who in my opinion does not represent and cannot relate to the public in any human manner. He fundamentally does not understand the population and society for which he set to represent for the next four frightening years.
Additionally, the Women’s March signifies that fight for women’s rights are not over.
We as a country have not achieved equality when there is still discrimination in wages, women are blamed for violence and rape, and women’s voices are hushed over talk about our own health care.
Women earned their right to vote nearly 100 years ago, yet we still face similar barriers that block equality specifically when we are scrutinized for making decisions that would be praised if a male were to do the same.
We as women are continually viewed as weak and incapable of performing equally to a man.
Just last week, my friends and I were told we couldn’t push our car out of the snow because our gender. In which we successfully did, without the help a macho, testosterone infused man.
Personally, I completely support the Women’s March. The march is a significant display of women’s dissatisfaction and restlessness with our current circumstances.
Women deserve to have had equal rights since the beginning of time, and it’s completely perplexing as to why we don’t.
