I've never been more proud to be a women more than I've ever been today. On this day, January 21, 2017, women of different backgrounds, their children, and the men that support them in all of their feminist glory took to the streets with their signs and chants. Many went marching today for their own specific reason, but what they all had in common was that they wanted their voices to be heard.
If you've been asleep for the past 3 years, I guess it's time to catch you up on the state of our country. Yesterday, Reality TV Star Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the President of the United States. Crazy, right? I can't believe I'm saying this either, but it's our own little sick personal reality TV show that we just can't seem to get away from. Many people in the United States and countries around the world came together and formed a Women March in their cities, which initially started in Washington D.C. According to MSNBC, this march was the largest inaugural protest in history since the Nixon presidency.
Sadly, I wasn't able to be a part of this most historical moment, but I felt so empowered and felt such positive vibes by watching and following the march through social media and the news. This was truly a wake up call. We have a man, who in a position of power, who tried to tear this country apart. He is a man who tried to cause division not only in this country, but within the world by putting fear in our hearts for the past few years. This march proved that his mission was incomplete. People around the world who marched, or voiced their support, showed unity and solidarity. This showed that we are so much stronger united than we are divided.
Mr. Trump was proven wrong and this peaceful nonviolent protest proved that in so many ways. He made sure that we were all aware of our differences and tried to tell us that these differences were what makes the world destructible. But never underestimate the power of women, Mr. Trump. Our voices, strength, unity, resilience, boldness, charisma, intelligence, love, etc. (everything about us), can and will make this world a better place. So, be prepared. We nasty women (and men) are going to stick together and bring about change by empowering each other and turning our differences into something positive that we all have in common.
Ladies, we got in formation and I couldn't be prouder! We have risen up against what society has taught us and wanted us to believe, which is that another female is our biggest competition and enemy when that is far from reality. Together, we are unstoppable.
