The “Women’s March” in 2017 which became the largest protest in the history of the United States, was held on Mr. Trump’s inauguration day, with protests all over the world in 81 different countries and took place in major cities in the US such as Washington D. C, Los Angeles, and New York. At the Women’s March, where more than 5 million people took part, the leader asserted the rights of people who had received discriminatory remarks from President Trump, such as minorities, immigrants, LGBT, and others. On January 20, 2018, the storms of Anti-Trump protest were blown all over the country. Women opposing the female contemptuous Trump would not be stopped.
Under the slogan Time’s Up, the Women’s March will not stop their opposition to the Trump administration. While the midterm elections take place this fall, Trump is not taken into account.
The essence of Women’s March is not a critique of Trump, but a global movement trying to protect the rights of women. Me too ‘s exercise triggered by the sexual harassment of Harvey Weinstein has made The Women’s March a great deal of excitement.
Looking to Europe, abortion is illegal in Northern Ireland (except in cases where pregnancy causes a serious health hazard to the mother) Poland, and in the UK, and FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) was undergone every 109 minutes Plan UK reports.
The Women’s March takes command of women, but everyone regardless of race, religion, and gender is welcome to participate. It is a movement where the citizen is actively participating rather than sitting on politics and has been involved in various fields such as science and the environment. People who have never participated in political activities are expanding their scale all over the world through the net and SNS.
The point is that by carefully scrutinizing Trump’s policies, like the previous activists who were able to win over human rights in their time, The Women’s March can become a sustainable movement that actually transforms society.
