2. The Women’s March, 2017
After the inauguration of Ex-president Donald Trump in 2017, The Women’s March, a worldwide protest, began against Trump and his statements, which were viewed as anti-women.
The main protest took place in Washington, D.C. – known as the Women’s March on Washington – and was streamed live on digital platforms such as YouTube and Facebook.
Listing advocation of women’s rights, healthcare reforms, reproductive rights and LGBTQ rights, among others, the march sent a bold message to the Trump administration on their first day about the importance of women’s rights.
Going down in US history as the largest single-day protest, the non-violent march was followed by “10 Actions for the first 100 days” to keep the momentum alive.
