In a story filed by McClatchy, Susan Clarke from Charlotte, North Carolina is quoted as saying, I think it’s great, do your thing, but I just don’t know what they’re doing it for.” The middle-aged Ms. Clarke continued, “I don’t understand what the point is.”
The demonstration, which is billed as the Women’s March on Washington, is expected to draw 200,000 people Saturday to the same route as the president’s inaugural parade. Similar marches are planned in more than 600 cities around the world.
Organizers have insisted that the march isn’t an anti-Trump protest but rather a rallying cry for women’s issues and a range of liberal causes that could be threatened by the Trump administration. The event’s policy platform covers issues such as racial profiling, climate change, abortion and LGBTQ rights. The official website lists 177 partners including Planned Parenthood, the Human Rights Campaign, the NAACP and Voto Latino.
