The day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump, the women of the world have come together to voice their opposition, their opinion and their resistance to being push back to where we had no rights.(Just so you understand. I didn’t just say the United States of America. I said the WORLD). On January 21, 2017, they made a choice to not go and run their normal Saturday errands. To forego and sacrifice their ever so precious weekend day to speak out against the infringement of their rights to be who they are – WOMEN! Not to objectified! Not to be belittled! Not to have their basic human rights taken away. hmmm!
Herein NYC it was such a beautiful site. There were all ages, all genders and all sexual orientation. What a site it was! A peaceful vibe. A unified vibe. Unified to maintain our basic rights as human beings. Sending a message that the resistance has started. I pray that it will continue on.
As the drums beat and I took a moment I realized how far the frustration and the realization of where this country was heading began to hit home for the many. What a peaceful and wonderful atmosphere. All in support of equality. All to show that we DON’T need to go back to the stone-age.
Let me get on my soap box for a moment if you will. I am going to focus on woman’s rights right now. We as women are the source of life. We carry the future. We embrace life. We are innovative. We are the .. (fill what you see fit. I could go on for hours with that one). In all honestly we (As women) are not to be messed with. We are not to be silenced. We are not to objectified. Just like everyone has a father, everyone has a mother. Anger us and see what shall fight with everything we have and then some.
With that being said – this day was not just represented by women alone. It was attended by families, single men, fathers, daughters, sons, sisters, brothers, transgender, gay, bisexuals and everyone in between. I can’t speak which spiritual belief anyone in the crowd had but I can only guess that many if not all were represented.
The sad thing is that this is not the first nor will it be the last time that we the people. (Whether you be a woman, black, Japanese, Native American and everyone that I have not mention here. We truly had that much diversity.) This is a fight that we have to keep going.(I say this with the most serious face!) Today was a success. I say this because there was no denying that the message was sent. We see your game and we are not playing.(That goes for both Trump as well as Pence) We are going off script. We are paying close attention. Close attention.
I have to give props to the women playing in the background. They played for hours keeping the crowd motivated and in high spirits. This rally literally shutdown midtown. In an orderly fashion of course.
I hope this will be the first of many to have the voices of the masses heard. That being said I feel that it is time to call out not only the President but the current First Lady as well. Your sisters have shouted out their dis pleasure. Not only here in the United States but all over the world. Literally spanning all 7 continents. How will YOU ensure us that we will not be objectified? How will YOU assure us that we can be the women that we truly are without fear of the objectiveness of the perverted and deviant? There are so many questions that must be answered. Not only to women but to all citizens that don’t fit your idealistic form of being. Because when it comes down to it, whether you like it or not each and everyone of us are Americans. Guess what? WE ARE WHAT MAKES AMERICA GREAT! AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN!

There was diversity? I guess I didn’t see it…there were so few Black women there, or at least severely underrepresented in the pictures and images.
Sorry for the late response.
In NYC I saw many different races of women, from the ground. I do feel that there could have been more. I wish I could have seen more. I wish I knew why there weren’t more. Hopefully there will be for the next one.
