Women's Marches Against Trump, Sexual Misconduct Held Across the Globe

Women's marches return to streets around the globe to rally against Trump, sexual assault Women march a year after Trump inauguration with renewed calls for equality

There are 6 comments on the Reuters story from 2 hrs ago, titled Women's March draws thousands as Trump term enters second year.

In New York a diverse crowd comprised primarily of women descended on Central Park West, the avenue that borders Manhattan's beloved park and finishes at the foot of the Trump International Hotel, part of the magnate-turned-commander-in-chief's real estate empire.

Women came together for 673 different demonstrations in various USA cities and countries all over the globe - even Antarctica held its own mini-march, complete with penguin protest signs. "Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months". "Lowest female unemployment in years!"

That something is to take power to the polls, which is also the theme of the more than 250 events this weekend scheduled across the country and in cities around the world.

Marchers oppose Trump administration policies and support campaigns against sexual harassment.

The reality of the current political moment, though, ensures there won't be too many conservatives coming out to carry any of the marches' inevitable anti-Trump posters.

Hell hath no fury like President Donald Trump seeing women doing something for themselves, and his latest tweet about the second-annual Women's March proves it.

Spike Gram joins hundreds of people gathered at the Capitol in downtown Tallahassee, Fla. for the Womens March on January 20, 2018.

Fusion GPS and the 'Insurance policy' to Prevent Trump From Becoming President
Asked if one of Mr Steele's sources had been "mysteriously killed", Mr Simpson said: "That's not my information". A possible link between Russian money and Trump's Doonbeg golf course in County Clare is being examined. .


Adolescence now lasts from 10 to 24, scientists recommend
However, not all experts agree with a new definition since it could help "further infantilize young people". In Britain, people are getting married almost eight years later than they were in 1973.


Titans have hired Mike Vrabel as head coach
He earned back-to-back All-America honors and was twice named Big Ten conference Defensive Lineman of the Year (1995 and 1996). The Titans are said to be prioritizing a first-time coach, and they want one who can help maximize the skill sets of players.


The strapline for Las Vegas is "Power to the Polls", created to drive national voter registration and maximising women's involvement in the 2018 midterm elections, in which a record number of women are standing for election.

"People are seeing women candidates are a good investment", Schriock said in an interview last week in her Washington office.

The event's Facebook page says it's being held by March Forward Virginia, the Women's March on Washington 2018. She and her friends said that since Trump was elected, boys at their high school have become more emboldened to bully girls online.

This year, thousands are marching again on the anniversary hoping to keep up the momentum from last year's movement. Millions of people around the world marched during last year's rallies, and many on Saturday thought about all that's happened in the past year.

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of MA, who was announced as an honorary co-chair of the Women's March with Lewis, will not be in attendance. The event featured speeches from several Democrats and activists. I tell this today not for me, but really for all of you.

In Rome, Argento addressed the criticism she received once she spoke up about her abuse.

Bob Bland, a NY fashion designer who is now one of the organization's national co-chairs, joined the call to action with her own message: "Who wants to join me?!?" she asked.

As disappointing as Clinton's 2016 loss was, Lee said, she thinks the number of women running for office - including at the local and state level - will make it easier for a woman to eventually win the White House. "Especially with the shutdown ― you just gave us ammo".
