No Limits for Girls

My ten-year-old daughter and I joined the No Limits for Women/No Limits for Girls team at the Boston (Massachusetts, USA) Women’s March, which had over 150,000 people.

Three girls and two boys—ages ten to fourteen and diverse in race and religion—led our team with a “No Limits for Girls” banner. The girls held the banner and went first. The boys followed closely behind, not taking over. The young people were followed by the adults of color, who were followed by the older white people. That we were led by young people made an impression on the people around us.

It was exciting to see the wide range of ages at the march. Everyone seemed to understand that we need the insights and strengths of each age cohort. Many people said it was their first political rally. I am thrilled by how much energy and intelligence is being unleashed!
