What' with doing it the 21st and changing name. STUPID STUPID STUPID

Last year, the first Women’s March —with its whimsical pink pussyhats paired with a dead-serious message about sexual violence— was announced for Washington and inspired sister marches in every US state and several cities globally. An estimated 4 million people marched nationwide, far exceeding expectations. Although the march was prompted by Hillary Clinton losing the election to US President Donald Trump (and held the day after his inauguration) it came to be about all the systems that threaten women’s equality, health, and human rights.

Importantly, it was also framed as a debut of a reinvigorated movement, not the culmination of one.

Here’s a look at what’s planned so far, according to a running list maintained by Women’s Alliance on Facebook.

All events are slated for Saturday, January 20, 2018.
