Photos: Gathering To Support Women’s March

January 21, 2017

[Updated with video] People are gathering this morning [Jan 21] in Queen Elizabeth Park in Hamilton, showing solidarity with women in the U.S. and around the globe, where thousands are participating in the Women’s March on Washington and more than 600 sister marches are taking place across the world.

The events are taking place the day after President Donald Trump was sworn in as 45th President of the United States, with the organisers of the march in Washington saying they hope to “send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world, that women’s rights are human rights.”

The organisers of the Bermuda event said, “There will be no formal speeches, and no marching. Simply like-minded individuals connecting and showing their support for champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, and with the Women’s March in Washington DC.”

    Please explain exactly what rights women don’t have in 2017 – in other words, what exactly are you marching/protesting for? Do you really know? Or are you just mad that Trump won?

    • Mike Hind says:

      Do you really not know? Are you THAT out of touch?
      They’ve been talking about defunding Planned Parenthood for a LONG time now.
      Plus getting rid of Roe v. Wade, etc. etc.

      Maybe you should read up on this stuff instead of just assuming this is a partisan, party thing.

      But, as you brought up Trump, what about the message it sends to women when people actually voted for someone who admitted that he sexually abuses women?

      I don’t understand how you can miss the point of this show of support this badly.

    • We have a certain segment that support overseas rallies but cant support LOCAL rallies !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      WTF

    • Catherine Dalziel says:

      I am not “Truth” but I would like to say that in 2017 there are many many rights that women don’t have – In Saudi Arabia women can’t drive, in Afghanistan they are not allowed to have the same education, in China and India, baby girls are killed, there are women all over the world being subjected to very different punishments from men for a variety of crimes, some of which their men committed but they must take the punishment for. Womens’ rights are human rights is the slogan of the march, and I agree. The march itself does not achieve anything, but the understanding of what is behind it, and encouraging our leaders to respect women is important.

      • Imagine being a woman and Black.

      • Truth says:

        This is a march in America, organised by Americans. Yes, those other countries have issues and are waaay behind the times. Maybe THEY should do something about it. This American march was organised at such a coincidental time. Tell me, why did women not march and protest BEFORE Americans went to the polls? Wouldn’t that have been a more effective time to protest – that is, if in fact, this wasn’t just an Anti Trump protest.

    • Jim Taylor says:

      You’re truly a knob.

    • Point boy says:

      @Truth. I reluctantly agree with you.

      We are at 2017 now. Women have exactly the same rights as men… I think for a couple of decades now.

    • Truth Teller says:

      Typical idiocy of a Trump fan.

  2. Cedar Stump says:

    Now that is a peaceful protest. And the spelling on the signs are correct !
    Say’s a lot !!

  3. Wahoo says:

    Hey girl.

  4. Terry says:

    Great way to show support.
    Communication means much.
    Shalom.

  5. ALVIN WILLIAMS says:

    Never seen anything like this in the aftermath of the swearing in an American president. world wide protest over the election of this man. Will Trump disbelieve what his eyes tell him?

  6. TimBuc says:

    Yup … No wonder wifey couldnt make me a samwich today. She was there.!!! No love lost :)

  7. Brian says:

    Bombshell question where were all these US women when they should have voted the first female President into power ???? O yeah silence

    • juels says:

      Hillary won the popular vote by over 3 million votes….

  8. Hair says:

    Give all a chance!!!

  9. mmm says:

    Virtually everyone knows what a protest is. If workers were told that there would be a 20 percent pay-cut, and the books show that the business /employer has done well over the past 5 years and no immmediate downturn..they have a right to express their concern..we all would. Women feel that they are not going to be respected..thus the protest.

    All I see is a bunch of sheeple.
