My Experience at the Women’s March

The second Women’s March took place on  Saturday, the 20th of January with thousands of men and women marching through the city. Marchers  arrived to the start at eleven thirty and the actual march began at around one o‘clock. What better place than the forward thinking city that is San Francisco; a place that encourages people to be different and to join movements or groups.

It was my first time going to the Women’s March; I was very excited but at the same time I was feeling very anxious since I didn’t know what to expect. Not knowing beforehand  how many people were attending the event many me feel a bit uneasy. However, I was with two of my closest friends and although there were a lot of people present it felt very organized,  and I did not experience any feelings of claustrophobia. I noticed that many of the posters were about the current president, Donald Trump many calling him out for the actions he has taken. Many marchers  took out their smartphones or cameras to take pictures of the poster or film videos of the event.

I expected there to be posters only concerning the rights of women, however I was pleasantly surprised that there were people with posters concerning the rights of children, teachers, and immigrants. For the second time I was proven wrong as all people from all ages attend the march. At one point there were three little girls in front of me and  they were all holding signs Then one of the girls started a chant. It amazed me that despite their young age they were supporting an important cause. It shows how ingrained all communities feel to support the cause; no matter the age. The whole environment felt extremely supportive for each other; and it seemed strangers bonded over the negative chants s aimed at Donald Trump. There was a group of people with instruments following along or starting the chants, which made the event more enjoyable. Overall  the march was an experience I will never forget, I loved the message behind the march and the support everyone showed.
