Women’s March: Global Movement Close to Home

The Women’s March on Washington was the largest single day of protest in U.S. history, with somewhere between 3.3 and 4.6 million gathering in cities across the nation on Jan. 21 to protest the inauguration of President Donald Trump the day before, according to the Independent.

Sophomore, Maya Rijhwani, was a participant of the Women's March in Oakland.

Many students from San Mateo High went to the marches in the Bay Area. Hayley Schaumkel, Sophomore, attended the march in San Francisco. “I was so happy to be there,” said Hayley. “I felt very inspired by everyone around me. Most of these people were there to show support and love to people. San Francisco is an amazing city.”

Journalism teacher Ms. Fergusson flew to DC for the march. “I wanted the new president to see that people are against his policies of exclusion including the wall and the Muslim ban. I saw signs addressing a wide range of issues including climate change and support for Planned Parenthood,” she said.

The estimated attendance for the central march in Washington D.C. was 500,000. The Women’s march in Los Angeles consisted of 750,000 people, outnumbering the March in D.C. The population for the New York March was 250,000, and the March in Chicago was also 250,000. In the Bay Area, the Women’s March in San Francisco had over 100,000 participants, and over 60,000 people took part in the March in Oakland. People also demonstrated in other countries. It’s estimated 4-5 million demonstrated worldwide.

“I wanted to be in D.C. because I thought that would have the most impact,” said Ms.Fergusson. “The March was incredible. It was wonderful to be with such a huge group of people. We completely filled the route so we couldn’t even march. And it was completely peaceful. There wasn’t one arrest. There were women in pink hats with ears everywhere.”
