My Experience at the Women’s March

January 21, 2016 – I got to participate and march in the Los Angeles women’s march, which, in a nutshell, was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. It warmed my heart to see about seven hundred thousand people of all races, sexualities, religions, men and women, old and young come together in solidarity to show support for women rights, equality, and justice. As well as seeing other places around the globe participate in their own as well. So, thank you to everyone who came to support and to those who dare to dream for a better future and a better now. To conclude, here’s to all women everywhere. We are strong. independent. beautiful. powerful – and we are going to change the world. (and I know this a little late, but better late than never!)

Here are some of my favorite photos I captured along the way (and some of my fave quotes to accompany them):

“Feminism isn’t about making women strong. Women are already strong. It’s about changing how the world perceives that strength.” – G.D. Anderson

“Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in.”―Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie 

“We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back.” – Malala Yousafzai

“A feminist is anyone who recognizes the equality and full humanity of women and men.” – Gloria Steinem

“There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” – Madeleine K. Albright

 


“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.” – Desmond Tutu
