While yesterday was undoubtedly a historic one, as Donald J. Trump was sworn in at the 45th Inauguration (inspiring a LOT of feelings in the process), today feels even bigger in many ways.
Thousands of female warriors have been making their way to DC to take on Washington for today’s historic Women’s March, and we, along with what seems like the rest of the world, have been cheering them on every step of the way.
Though the march isn’t slated to begin until 1pm, the pre-rally festivities have already begun, with speeches from the likes of America Ferrara and Gloria Steinem and musical acts ramping up the crowd of more than what the march’s speakers gauge at 500,000. “Thank you for putting your bodies where your beliefs are — Sometimes pressing ‘send’ is not enough,” Gloria told supporters this morning.
If you aren’t among their ranks, however, don’t fret: You can still participate. In addition to joining one of the 600 sister marches that have organized and wearing your support, you can actually tune in live — starting right now!
Facebook, YouTube and Twitter (not to mention countless news outlets!) are all streaming the march online, and we’ve gotta say — we’re inspired AF just watching! You can also text “Women” to 40649 or visit RiseNow.us to get involved as well: As speakers have already begun to make clear, their efforts won’t end with today. As a matter of fact, they’ve got a plan for the next 100 days of Trump’s time in office. Wut!
Let’s go, ladies — YOU’VE GOT THIS!
