I thought I'd give this post a very straight-forward title so folks could decide whether or not they wanted to continue reading.
So on behalf of ALL women, my sister and I marched in Eugene, Oregon on an extremely rainy Saturday afternoon.
The march gathered at our federal court house.
Many speakers including a city councilor, our mayor, and Representative Peter DeFazio.
Lots of creative and inclusive signs. I especially liked the group of link cranes - signs of peace.
We took off as the rain poured down...
...lots of supportive police...
Lots of pink!
Another marcher graciously shared a couple of her aerial shots.
The police estimated that there were 10,000 participants.
Yes, there were political statements!
Dozens of supports lined the overpark structure.
Marchers and supports on the parking structure.
This sign said "Following in their footsteps".
I carried ALL women in my heart. I found the experience to be extremely positive and uplifting. Someone posted that after leaving the courthouse, there was only one coffee cup to pick up. Truly amazing the size and number of marches in the USA and worldwide. Following my Facebook feed on Saturday at time brought tears to my eyes - so much energy and love. We are stronger together!
I have a link on the right of the blog for "10 Actions in 100 Days" - a follow up to the march. It starts with a postcard campaign.
