Women’s March

Also old news, especially given today’s fast news cycle, but that’s ok. We went to the women’s march in DC, and it was so heartening to see so many women (and men) who care about issues that affect women. It was very meaningful.

I love how many hats were on the metro. We debated the best way to get into DC without waiting for hours to get on a train, and we also didn’t want to stand in the cold for too many hours. We went in late morning via Largo, and we had no trouble parking, amazingly, and we got right on a train.

We finally found a spot where we could hear (but not see) and not be packed into a crowd right across from the African Art Museum.

After way too many speeches, the crowd was restless to march – I think the crowd was so big they weren’t sure how that was going to work. But eventually the people near us started funneling down Constitution, and we followed. We marched a few blocks down and then took a left away from the mall, since we were tired. There was a big line for the metro, but it moved so fast, I didn’t even have time to get food from a food truck while Doug waited on line. So we had little problem getting a train back. A success!

A high school friend who lives in NJ came down with his family and made this sweet sign.

Not my photo obviously, but later on, a photo of how much the march was. That’s the new African American museum.

We are in this image somewhere, off to the leff side of the crowd in front of the big building:
