The Women's March
By Isabella D Ambrosi
Although we are going through a tiring and discouraging pandemic, there are countless
people still fighting for social justice and equality. One of the many outlets to display one’s passion towards societal issues is this weekend’s Women’s March (https://womensmarch.com/). This annual event typically takes place in January, but due to the uprise of tension for the pending confirmed replacement of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Amy Coney Barrett, it will be conducted differently this year. The Women’s March Organization is hosting a virtual march along with an in-person march in many cities on October 17th. The goal of these marches is to protect women’s reproductive rights and protest Ginsburg’s replacement being confirmed before this November’s presidential election.
I have attended the Women’s March for the past four years and have become more involved and educated on many different issues in our country. The Women’s March is one of my favorite days of the year because it is heartwarming to see the unified sea of people gathering together for a cause they believe in. No matter the differences in age, sexual orientation, gender, race, or religion, all of these people are fighting for the common goal: equality. It is a breath of fresh air to see and meet people who stand for the same beliefs as me. The Women’s march is extremely crucial this year due to the time frame of the political sphere. It is crucial that people, especially those in the younger generations, educate themselves on the numerous social justice topics that will be implicated by the 2020 election, and joining in for the Women’s March is a great place to start.
