Women's March Series

I’d never been to a protest before the Women’s March in Washington D.C., 2016. And yet, this particular day shattered my preconceived image of political protests. It felt like less of a protest, and more of a communal uprising. Less of a protest for a concrete matter, more of a general refusal to comply with certain values. We were necessitating and demanding a change. By marching, we represented an active refusal of our society’s current state.

A year and a half later, I am grateful that I have photos that illuminate the indescribable energy and momentum of 470,000 people who gathered for the first official Women’s March.
