As probably a lot of you have heard, last Saturday hundreds of Women’s Marches were held across the world in protest of recent political events. Donald Trump had just been inaugurated. Over the previous week he has continued to do pretty awful stuff. These Women’s Marches were in support and protection of our rights, and for equality.
I attended the Women’s March on London. It was my first demonstration/march/suchlike — I didn’t bring a placard, and I wasn’t able to march the whole way, but I walked for a bit and then my mum & I stood on the steps in front of the National Gallery. I was surrounded by others who were angry about the world.
We talked a bit to the those standing around us, and it was cool to see that there seemed to be a wide variety of people attending. The newspapers after said that it was mostly young people, but I actually saw a lot of families there, so. I’m not sure where that came from. I don’t completely know the stats, though.
