Women’s March on Madison + Link Up

women's march womens-march-madison

Hi all! I would like to let you know right away, this is a post featuring photos from Women’s March on Madison that took place on Saturday.

As someone who came from a country where women have very few rights, where patriarchy reigns, where gay people can’t express their feelings towards each other, where foreign exchange students get harassed, raped and killed, I marched! I marched because I can make a difference. I marched because I am a citizen. I marched to support. I marched to spread love. I marched for a better future.

I didn’t march to show hate, to support one side over the other. I marched for equality, rights and freedom for all.

I want to end with this quote – The Devil whispered in my ear, “You’re not strong enough to withstand the storm.” Today I whispered in the Devil’s car, “I am the storm.”

  2. That quote- yes!!! I saw it a few times last week. I marched for the same reasons that you did. I don’t want hate or division. I want a great country because this is a great country. Love all the photos! Let’s keep up the momentum and keep organizing and moving forward!

  3. I am glad that people felt passionate to march for so many causes.I hope more people will continue to speak up for others and moblize to help others on a daily basis.

  4. I marched too for all the same reasons. Love this post, love your photos, and love you hat!!

  5. Thank you for marching! I marched in DC, too. It was very inspiring! So many take our freedom for granted, and it is refreshing when so many people decide to get out there and exercise our democratic rights.
