"It was an unreal feeling being surrounded by people who outwardly voiced opinions and values that are important to me. When I was at the march, it was refreshing to see so many people who want what I want and it helped me realize that I can shape the future."

"I felt hopeful after seeing how many people returned this year to participate in the Women's March. It was especially uplifting because the signs were generally more intersectional and inclusive this year, and seeing girls and boys participate at such a young age showed me that this political activism will not stop at the Women's March" -Kyla Eastling '18

"The energy at the Women's March was infectious. Looking out at the sea of signs that connected many different issues surrounding gender, sex, sexual orientation, race, the environment, the current political climate, etc. encourages me. People are coming together to collaborate, learn, and create meaningful and inclusive change" -Sydney Joseph '18
