An Open Letter To Any Feminist On The Fence About Supporting The Women's March / Elizabeth Strassner / Bustle.com



Excellent piece from writer Elizabeth Strassner about protesting in the Trump era. The powerful opening paragraph:

I know many people have a lot of reservations about protesting. As anyone who’s ever been on a conference call knows, collective action can be frustrating and hard. Despite this, on Jan. 21, 2017, Americans across the country should go out and demonstrate against the inauguration of Donald Trump. No, I don’t think it’s going to magically reverse his Electoral College victory, nor do I think it will instantly inspire conservative congresspeople to make women’s rights a central aspect of their work. However, the Women’s March on Washington (and its many associated sister marches throughout the country) is the best vehicle Americans have right now to send the clear message that any  dire changes about to happen in the United States will not occur with their consent.
