I marched because I have a mother and daughters and sisters and aunts and grandmothers.
I marched because I have held space for the fears of my immigrant students and friends.
I marched because democracy looks like voting AND it looks like this.
Today I stood with half a million feminists as we peacefully occupied the streets of Washington, DC.
Today I sang protest songs on the overcrowded metro to the rally.
Today I walked back across the river because the metro was too full.
Today I put my body where my mouth is.
Today I stood up.
