Women’s March

On January 21st, the National Organizers of the Women’s March on Washington encourages everyone of all genders, ethnicities, and religious faiths to gather together. This march honors the champions of human rights and supports the protection of family, friends, health, and safety. The organizers who founded and collaborated with communities hope to send a bold message that everyone—the economically impoverished, survivors of sexual assault, the disabled, those who are accepting of all people, and indigenous people are included and represented in this march. Starting from just a simple idea, this march could become the biggest inauguration demonstration. Despite rocky starts and controversies surrounding the Women’s March on Washington, today will be a place to welcome concerns and won’t tolerate hate. Inclusive to everyone, thousands have already said they would attend. This historical event calls upon the people with a purpose of nonviolence in a peaceful environment and a will to unify them to create a diverse community for the strength of our country. The students and teachers here at Exeter High School are welcome to join together and defend human rights in remembrance of the sacrifices made by those who fought for what they believed in. The Portsmouth, NH Women’s March for Civil Rights rally is set to begin at 1 pm today.
