“Why I’m Marching:” 32 Women on the Women’s March

Because sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option


The Women’s March on Washington couldn’t have picked a better starting point: the corner of Independence Avenue and Third Street West. This Saturday at least 200,000 people will come together in front of the Capitol in D.C. to march with a message championing human rights, dignity and justice.

And 616 sister marches (including 26 in Canada!) will step out in solidarity—with as many as 1.3 million people in cities all over the world taking part in the day’s demonstrations.

To find out the many reasons why women are marching, FLARE reached out to women participating in marches across Canada, as well as in Washington, DC. Here are their stories.

  1. Great diversity, but no one over 40 or so.


  2. I’m marching in hopes that it helps my aunts and female cousins stay safe in America!


  3. Wait flare. Let me get this straight. Linda Sarsour who was a leader of the March promotes Sharia law in America. See you kidding me? How anti women can you get? Sharia law people wake up.
