1/21/17 Portland Woman's March. The crowd was estimated to be between 70,000 and 100.000 people on this very rainy day. The anti fascists didn't support the march not for it's purpose but because they submitted their planned route to police officers and upon closer inspection many of the officers whom had assaulted the students and anti fascists the night before during an inauguration march were seen high fiving and hugging many folks marching here. For many of Portland this was their entry into protest and resistance. Did the woman's marches in the country change anything? From personal experience I attribute the woman's march to starting a dialog and meetings in my neighborhood as to what we can do as ordinary citizens to promote resistance which continues on to this day. I also wonder if the woman's march gave birth to the #metoo movement. What do you think?
