Women’s March on NYC

Yesterday was a hard day. The world as I know it fundamentally changed and I am still working on coming to terms with what comes next.

As of now, people around the world raised their voices in support of one another.

I joined them here in New York City, attending the Women’s March as a demonstration of what I believe in and what I stand for. Being part of such a jubilant, supportive, loving, optimistic, hopeful crowd is an experience I will never forget. Even the chanting was overwhelmingly an expression of solidarity, a promise to look out for those around us as we enter uncharted waters.

Our city!
Our streets!

Your body, your choice!
My body, my choice!

Who rules the world?
Girls!

Show me what democracy looks like!
This is what democracy looks like!

There is a great deal of uncertainty still, with remaining confirmation hearings, important issues pages disappearing from the White House website, and a lot of unanswered questions about what Trump actually believes. While the people wait, they cry out. Better late than never.

I am woman, hear me roar.

    1. They are! I did them in black and white for two reasons: a) I wanted to reflect the polarization that exists in our society right now and b) I wanted viewers to feel like this could have been their neighborhood or experience. Hope those ideas came across!
