One Year Later, Women's March Looks Ahead

Jan 23, 2018

This past weekend marked one year since President Trump’s inauguration. It was also the first anniversary of the record-breaking Women’s March. The 2017 march likely included more than 3 million people. That’s about one-and-a-half percent of the entire US population. This weekend’s marches saw more than a million people participate, and organizers are working to broaden the movement's scope and inclusivity.

 

We talked to Nora Benavidez, attorney and cofounder of the Georgia Alliance for Social Justice, the group that organized Atlanta's events. We also heard from Rebecca Watts Hull, instructor at Georgia Tech’s school of History and Sociology.
