Women's March Paris
Two days ago, we participated in the Women's March in Paris to show solidarity with the ladies in Washington. Our impromptu group was made up of expats from a few different countries (the US, of course, Canada, Italy) and the guys outnumbered the gals.
We know there were many reasons why people felt compelled to march. And that led to criticism that the event itself was unfocused, disjointed and wouldn't accomplish much. To me, equality for all was the overarching theme of the day and it manifested itself differently for each person based on their experiences.
The reason why I marched:
There are many rights that we, as women, currently have. For the most part, I've taken them for granted. They've always been there for me. I didn't have to fight for them. Countless other women did that job (and continue to do it) for me. On Saturday, it was my turn to stand up.
Here are some pictures from the day:
Oh and you can find a photo of the back of my head at Liberation.fr (en français).
"Sol-sol-sol solidarité avec des femmes du monde entier!"
