The 3rd annual Women’s March was held in Washington D.C. yesterday. Did you participate? Did you follow the main events on TV or Internet?
I’ve collected my favorite scenes from the march, plus a gem from Marianne Williamson, who lectured at the Washington National Cathedral on November 30, 2018. Her talk delves into the power and vision that American women, that all women, must embrace now or never. I’ve included it here because it beautifully augments the 2019 Women’s March.
Now is the time for women (and good men) to step up to the plate, and fiercely play the political game in order to win justice for all. The children, the world, and the very Earth need us to take command over those motivated by self-perceived privilege and/or corporate greed. We must subdue those who have driven the world into devastating economic inequality and environmental disaster.
Thank you to all the women who marched, and to the men who support them.
Feminine Power & Policy
From the New York City sister-march, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez outlined the political course of feminine power.
Last year we took the power to the polls. And this year we’re taking power to the policy.~ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Best Women’s March Poster…
Most Poignant Slogan
In light of the climate crisis and urgent need for global collaboration to drive effective climate action, and along with women’s general overall skill and willingness for collaboration, the most poignant saying spied at the 2019 Women’s March is an old slogan from the 1970s.
“The Future Is Female.”
The canniest slogan [5 of 35 slides] was seen at a sister-march in Melbourne, Florida:
“Make America Think Again.”
“Halfway There,” from ROZES, was the official rally song of the 2019 Women’s March.
We’re already halfway there. Are we gonna finish what we started or just leave it here?~ From chorus of “Halfway There”
Female Spirit & Power
No one can pull together the spiritual and the intellectual like Marianne Williamson does. Listen to what she has to say to American women in the final session of the Washington National Cathedral’s 2018 Women’s November Series.
You will never be the same.
As if in reply to the question posed by ROZES, it’s clear that Williamson is betting on women to finish what they started.
We will do more than move mountains… We will go down in history as people who, in our time, did rise to the occasion… We were women who loved hard, and prayed deep, and in the final analysis, we kicked ass.~ Marianne Williamson
The Future Is Female!

I took my Corgi to the march with me and made her a sandwich board to wear. One side said ‘Bitch Power’ and the other said ‘I would make a better president.’ SHe was a big hit, but was not happy when she didn’t get a sandwich. I have a picture on my site. It’s pretty adorable
Corgi’s are normal adorable – but as a protester! I checked your site, Angela, but couldn’t find her picture. Share a link?
Oh, I bet I have it scheduled for later tonight. oops.

Adorable! (And truth in humor!)
Hell, even the sandwich would make a better president than the current one.
LMAO True that
makes me happy seeing
the woman being present
showing their caring
and bringing love to conquer hate 🙂
Yes, love is power! 🙂
Our local gathering on the steps of the Alaska Capitol building was conducted under blue skies.
Thanks JoAnn – awesome and inspiring! x
My pleasure, Animalista. Democracy and justice for all creatures!
We will be heading out again on our roadtrip again in search of marches. Any particular ones you recommend attending from March-June? When and where? Thanks.
I’ve been looking for marches, particularly a national/international climate march. Saw no dates yet… around April, Earth Day???
The ‘Unrig the System’ conference looks interesting (anti-corruption). There’s a registration fee. https://joannchateau.com/2018/11/21/event-unrig-the-system-summit-2019/
James, you’ve got the life! Traveling and activism. Have a safe and happy trip.
Thank you for sharing
