Excuse our makeshift signs. It's a ripped up paper bag and my lipstick. Before going into this Emory and I put some thought into it. The Women's March has appropriated black activism and white feminism is very prominent in the movement. We were conflicted because not all women were represented, at least in the past. It is important for us to make sure we know what their mission is. However, we felt obligated to march as a way to represent ourselves but also for those who aren't represented. We wanted to go because we knew the work wasn't over and without our presence we couldn't share what we believed needed to change and the rights that needed to be protected, not just for ourselves but other people. Not being active would be ineffective. We also recognize that the activists who chose not to go are still active and pushing for change. So here's to all the women in the world that deserve equality and respect in all aspects of life. We see YOU.
