At the International Women’s Strike march in Washington Square Park



There were activities across the city yesterday related to the International Women's Strike ... more than 1,000 people (per media estimates) gathered in Washington Square Park late in the afternoon for a rally and march to Zuccotti Park ...

Per coverage at Gothamist:

Thousands of women and their allies gathered in Washington Square Park late Wednesday afternoon to demand equality and justice for all women, particularly those who are most at risk to the Trump agenda — immigrant women were joined by trans women, queer women, sex workers, nurses, and labor and Black Lives Matter organizers.

The rally, which capped off the Day Without A Woman strike, demanded justice for all, regardless of economic status. At one point the crowd closest to the Washington Square Arch chanted, "Feminism for the masses, not just the ruling classes!"

EVG contributor Derek Berg was at the start of the march, and shared these photos...

Fantastic. I hope to see so much more of this. We can all combat predatory patriarchal capitalism by spending less money on worthless consumer goods and women can really stick it to the man instead of working for him by staying home and raising their own children instead of turning them over to patriarchy's indoctrination centers. Viva la vulva! Yes we can!

Spare us your The World According To Garp man-hating nonsense.

This march was/is not an anti-men march, it's a pro-women and anti-male oppression march, the men being Trump and his ilk.
