Our show on Tuesday, January 24th, 12:00-1:00 PM, will look at the historic Women’s March on Washington and Sister Marches Worldwide! An estimated 1 million women marched in just Washington alone with another 2 million in Sister Marches throughout the US and another million worldwide!
These marches advanced a far ranging progressive agenda including racial justice, women’s reproductive rights, equal pay, environmental justice, immigrant rights, anti-sexual assault, economic rights, healthcare, Muslim dignity, indigenous sovereignty, intersectionality, centrality of African American, Latina, Asian and Native women and so many other issues. Although not organized as an anti-Trump March, speakers and marchers repeatedly challenged President Trump, his nominations, policies, pre and post election statements and other actions.
How will this protest become a sustained movement? What are the next steps?
Our prominent guests will include Janaye Ingram, National Logistical Coordinator, Women’s March on Washington; Terry O’Neill, President of the National Organization for Women; and Brenda Ford Harding, Chair, Transformative Justice Coalition. See full bios of guests.
As one of every 100 US residents marched this past Saturday, a crucial question is how will this movement influence the policies of the new Trump Administration? Will the Women’s March help seed and inspire a new Resistance Movement? How can our listeners become involved in future movements? What does the Sister marches worldwide mean for fighting authoritarian regime and misogynistic policies?
Be sure to listen live to the show on Tuesday, 12:00-1:00 PM, in the DC Metro Region, at WOL 1450 AM and worldwide on the Internet at www.BarbaraArnwine.com.
