That Time We Made History: The Women’s March

Usually, I write about history. This week I was involved with making it. And it reminded me of something Olivia Villanti perfectly wrote:

“The best outcome of all is how intensely motivated we seem to be to not assume equality will just happen, but that we—all of us in big and small ways—will work even harder for it.

Because it just happened, I won’t attempt to analyze it yet or its place in history. Instead, I’ll just leave you with some pictures from the Women’s March on a very foggy, but peaceful and powerful January day in Philly:

You may recognize the art museum from the movie Rocky, when he runs up the steps.

There were lots of men and fathers with their sons and daughters, a beautiful peek into the future.
