What is it?      BY

What started as a Facebook page calling for women to show up in D.C. to protest Trump’s inauguration has morphed into a mass movement in the space of two months. The event’s organizers say the march will allow people to “stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families” while “recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.”

A quarter of a million people say they are interested in attending the march, while 177,000 people have marked themselves as “going” on the group’s official Facebook page. The march is intended to be a stand against the “rhetoric of the past election cycle [which] has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us,” including women, immigrants, Muslims and LGBTQ people.

In the lead-up to the march, people are using the hashtag #WhyIMarch to explain their reasons for protesting on January 21.
