Will you be attending the Women's March?

The 2017 Women's March attracted attention across the globe for being the largest single-day demonstration in recorded U.S. history, with an estimated 4 million people attending. But a lot has happened in a year. Women's March organizers angered many when they invited Bernie Sanders to open the Women's Convention, and some female activists in red states have created their own groups focused on district organizing instead of protest.

The 2017 Women's March attracted attention across the globe for being the largest single-day demonstration in recorded U.S. history with between 3,267,134 and 5,246,670 people attending. 

But a lot has happened in the year since the inaugural march. Most notably, Women's March organizers came under fire when they invited Bernie Sanders to open the Women's Convention, and some female activists in red states have broken off and created their own groups focused on district organizing instead of protest. 

“We can march and take to the streets and yell about all the stuff we want to change, but unless we’re getting people elected to office who are going to make those changes, we’re not really doing anything,” said Lindsey Kanaly, who organized the women’s march in Oklahoma City and is now a March On board member.

Many argue the Women's March has been hijacked by organizers whose main focus is not women's rights, but promoting Bernie Sanders and trashing the DNC.

But others argue the enthusiasm is still there, and the minor divisions within Women's March are not enough to derail the movement.
