Find Out Why 2.5 Million Women Marched in the US

Washington DC (McN) – Women wearing pink hats, and dashes of pink clothing or accessories gathered together with men and marched, chanting with unity in Washington DC on Saturday, January 21, 2017.

A March of 2.5 Million women was never achieved before January 21, 2017, anywhere planet Earth. This March was a once in a lifetime opportunity to speak up for women’s rights, civil rights, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, worker’s rights, disability rights, immigrant rights, environmental justice and ending violence. 

The unity March underwent without disruption. It bonded people of all races, color, religion, creed, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Washington DC was packed with people from all over, people from as far as California was there, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Maryland and Nebraska – all came out for the cause they believe in.

The Mckoy’s News representative on the ground spoke with a lady that travel hours across the United States – all the way from California, which took her at least five hours and a few plane rides to get to Washington DC, she told our news representative:
I traveled here by myself, I left everyone back home in California. I have no relatives or friends here but, I could not miss this part of history. I was determined to participate in the March, to stand-up for women’s right. We need to be heard.” Said the very excited visitor.
In Summery: Women deserve to live full and healthy lives free of all forms of violence against their bodies.

The March stood up for ACCOUNTABILITY and JUSTICE in cases of police brutality, ending racial profiling and targeting of inner-city communities

Quote:  “It is not our differences that divide us.  It is our inability to recognize, accept and celebrate those differences.”
