Women’s March Takes on Capitol Again


During the first Women’s March on Jan. 21, 2017, people marched together across the globe after President Trump’s inauguration in protest of the lack of legislation being passed in support of human rights. (photo by Annie Simon)

Almost two years ago I participated in my first protest, a sister march of the Women’s March in DC. After President Trump was inaugurated, I had a hard time figuring out how to make my voice heard, especially as a high schooler who is not able to vote yet, but the protest helped my find a way to express how I was feeling and band together with lots of other people who were feeling the same way as I was.

Now it’s almost time to march again and I encourage everyone to make their voice heard. I know I’ll be joining too with a “pussyhat” on my head and a sign in hand. Our  march this year will take place at noon on Jan. 19 at the State Capitol. If you don’t live in Little Rock and still want to take part in the cause go to womensmarch.org to get more information about possible events near you.
