women's march

I marched because I am a woman.

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.
