The March of Women organized on Saturday (17) a protest in Washington and other U.S. cities against President Donald Trump’s policies and against Amy Coney Barrett’s appointment to the Supreme Court.
The protests take place in the context of the U.S. presidential election campaign and are primarily aimed at getting Americans to vote against President Trump.
Executive Director of the March of Women, Rachel O’Leary Carmona, spoke during the rally asking people to wear masks and respect a distance. She talked about the power of women to end Donald Trump’s presidency.
“His presidency started with women marching and will now end with women voting. Period,” she said.
Dozens of other protests were scheduled from New York to San Francisco to signal opposition to Trump and his policies.
The demonstration is part of a series of feminist marches that began the day after Donald Trump took office in January 2017.
