On January 20th, 2018 in Riverside, California, women and men alike joined forces. The women’s march was an opportunity amidst everyone’s busy lives to take a stand against prejudice together. Most everyone had signs speaking their mind; some were snarky and some were sophisticated. Beginning the event, everybody gathered in front of the town hall and admired the empowering view around them. Taking pictures of each other and feeling an overwhelming amount of pride and joy for the cause and the strangers standing all around you. Being entitled to something so significant was eye-opening. People of all types stood shoulder to shoulder listening to the all-women choir before the march started, and once the crowd started to enhance, so did the respect.

Inquiries of the purpose behind the march were replied with “it’s time to respect [the women’s] existence or expect [women’s] resistance”. Women have for eras, felt as though their existence was ignored or controlled. Years of oppression and resistance have pursued over the years, spilling into 2018. Women have dared to speak their mind and claim their place in the world that has proved to be cruel. From drowning witches, demanding the placement of women in society, to ignoring rights and their suffrage for too long among other things, women have felt for ages that men had the upper hand, that they were the superior gender. The people who marched may or may not have felt this oppression and demand first hand, and that’s precisely why the march occurred. The march was about women and men alike, who have felt as though women have never had the upper hand or even a hand in the matter at all. The march may not have made a change overnight, but situations like this require constant attention and are not a simple matter that can be fixed by the slightest of touch. People have been fighting for the cause for years; progress has been made, but people who stand for the cause will blatantly not rest until they see the equal involvement that they seek.
