I drove up to Washington, D.C. on the Friday before the Women’s March. As I was getting closer to the city, I began noticing an abundance of cars being driven by women with all sorts of feminism and equal rights bumper stickers.

The march itself started at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday downtown, but the streets and sidewalks of D.C. were already overflowing with people by 8:00 in the morning. The march was an absolutely incredible experience. I met so many passionate females: grandparents, moms, daughters. It was really refreshing to see such a large number of men as well.

One of the trends that dominated the ocean of protesters was the pink knitted hat that originated from the “Pussyhat Project”. My favorite thing about the protest was that, although it took place in over 500 countries around the world, there were zero arrests made. It was a peaceful demonstration that brought together a myriad of men and women. I am extremely grateful to have attended the Women’s March on Washington and been apart of such a colossal event in the progression of women’s rights.
