|Women March Downtown Los Angeles|
Taxation without representation. Today women make up 51% of the U.S. population and ONLY 19% of congress - this is taxation without representation.
The march was an uplifting event in support of women and women's rights and issues of importance to women. The numbers of women in attendance proved women feel marginalized in today's America and are deeply concerned about their rights in the future. And that is why women showed up by the hundreds of thousands all around the world, to demand to be heard!
Secondarily, the natural consequence of being for something is rejection of anyone or anything real or perceived that would seek to remove, violate, or minimize those rights as seen by each unique individual in attendance. As a minority, a woman, a mom, a daughter, a sister, a business owner, a working mom, a friend of women and the mom of a child with disabilities I was there because women have to be represented in America. Today women make up 51% of the U.S. population and ONLY 19% of congress - this is taxation without representation. This is why I stayed up and knitted pink hats, took my kids, and fought all of the transportation challenges of the day. So glad I got to be there and showed my daughter what democracy looks like in the USA. God Bless America!
|So happy to be there with my children and friends|
