Dallas Women’s March 2018

More than just a moment of female empowerment, the Women’s March has given birth to a global movement towards wide-spread equality.

From Washington to Dallas, Rome and Beijing, millions gathered for the second annual Women’s March, that took place on January 20th, 2018. A Dallas local, I took full advantage of the opportunity to attend my respective city’s march, organized by Texas State Representative, Victoria Neave and local politician, Rhetta Bowers. It was my first demonstration and an experience that was truly liberating…

We were marching for women’s rights, but my brothers and sisters had more than gender equality, on their minds [and poster boards]. The Women’s March has given birth to a wide-spread movement towards equality– reproductive rights, an end to the wage gap, just immigration policy, and rights for trans and gays, and it’s a movement that has only just begun.

As march co-chair Rhetta Bowers says, “Last year, we said this was a moment, but now, it’s a movement”.

Below is the recap of the Dallas Women’s March 2018.
