A Look at the Womxn's March in Seattle

Led by drumming and singing by Indigenous Sisters Resistance, an estimated 130,000–200,000 people marched from Judkins Park to Seattle Center on Saturday, Jan. 21, for the Womxn’s March on Seattle.

The march, one of hundreds of sister marches to the Womxn’s March in Washington, D.C., is believed to be the largest protest in Seattle history, according to The Seattle Times. Marchers of all ages and genders expressed resistance to the policies and character of President Trump with signs reading, “Pussy Grabs Back” and “Not My President.”

The Womxn of Color and Families contingent, led by organizations including Got Green, Families of Color Seattle and Gabriela Seattle, emphasized the importance of intersectionality, with calls for support of Black Lives Matter and immigrants, and against the new youth jail.
