2018 Women’s Marches

There are several Women’s Marches planned for 2018. For women’s groups, events of the past year have generated a brutal mix of emotions. Movements like #MeToo surfaced anger and pain from years of physical or sexual abuse, and brought to light pervasive problems like pay inequality and intellectual sexism. At the same time, there was joy in celebrating the solidarity of coming together around a common cause.

No wonder, then, that women have been contacting Katherine Siemionko, head organizer of last year’s New York City Women’s March, asking about plans for a second march.

Siemionko, who heads Women’s Alliance, the nonprofit that grew out of last year’s ad hoc team of march planners, says that Women’s March 2.0 plans have rolled in from networked groups in cities across the country over the past week. New York’s event, to be held January 20, was announced in a press release in October.

“It’s kind of scary how it mirrors last year,” she say, describing how momentum picked up right around this time in 2016. “I’m getting calls from friends in Florida,” says Siemionko, People want to know if marches are happening in their cities and if not, they’re offering to plan one.

Last year, the first Women’s March —with its whimsical pink pussyhats paired with a dead-serious message about sexual violence— was announced for Washington and inspired sister marches in every US state and several cities globally. An estimated 4 million people marched nationwide, far exceeding expectations. Although the march was prompted by Hillary Clinton losing the election to US President Donald Trump (and held the day after his inauguration) it came to be about all the systems that threaten women’s equality, health, and human rights.

Importantly, it was also framed as a debut of a reinvigorated movement, not the culmination of one.

Here’s a look at what’s planned so far, according to a running list maintained by Women’s Alliance on Facebook.

  1. Usually I don’t read post on blogs, however I wish to say that
    this write-up very compelled me to try and do so!

    Your writing taste has been amazed me. Thanks, very nice post.

  2. In my opinion that a foreclosed can have a important effect on the applicant’s life. Real estate foreclosures can have a 8 to ten years negative influence on a debtor’s credit report. A borrower that has applied for a mortgage or any kind of loans even, knows that the actual worse credit rating will be, the more challenging it is for any decent personal loan. In addition, it could affect a borrower’s power to find a respectable place to let or hire, if that will become the alternative property solution. Great blog post.

  6. One thing I have actually noticed is that there are plenty of myths regarding the finance institutions intentions if talking about foreclosures. One myth in particular is the fact that the bank would like your house. The lender wants your hard earned dollars, not the home. They want the funds they lent you with interest. Averting the bank will simply draw any foreclosed realization. Thanks for your post.
