photo essay: atlanta women's march
On January 21st, I marched (in the rain) because women’s rights are human rights. Because in 2017, it’s ludicrous that women have still not achieved full equality, that so many men and women see strong, independent women as a threat to their social order and therefore must continue to be contained. I marched for equal pay. For reproductive and sexual freedom. For paid maternity leave and child care. For diversity. I marched against violence. Against racism. Against discrimination. Against patriarchy. Against anyone who believes women are less than men.
And finally, I marched because it’s NOT OKAY that a misogynist, racist, ignorant, hate-and-fear-mongering white man is now president of the United States.
these are the photos i captured on this historic day.
