Women’s marches broke all kinds of records everywhere again. Those videos showing huge crowds in all major cities fill me with hope.
Last year, the movement surprised many. We knew it would be a big and strong response to the political climate. But no one expected crowds of such proportions. And those of us who stayed home… well, we regretted having missed out on such a historic moment.
But not this year! Not everyone can travel to large (usually coastal) cities. So it seems that every midsized city organized their own march. I would love to find more info about how many people marched all over the country. We marched in Richmond, VA. Friends of mine marched in other small nearby cities. I imagine there were hundreds of marches and events!
That gives me hope. This is happening EVERYWHERE. I even saw Facebook conversations about women’s rights among people who live in countries on the other side of the planet.
But you know what really excites me? The individual stories of all the girls (and boys) who attended, who held signs, and most of all, who discussed women’s rights at the dinner table this past weekend.
To me, kids were the real stars of this march. Girls rocking Girl Power like only they can. Boys supporting strong girls. Dads, raising their daughters up on their shoulders.

I asked friends and followers on social media to share pictures of their kids at the women’s marches. Here is a slideshow featuring amazing kids who showed us what it means to be Brave Like a Girl!
