Stepping out of Terror, with Other Women

I attended the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. (USA), with No Limits for Women.

The women who organized the march modeled women of the global majority not waiting for anyone or anything to make things right for everyone. They took on the leadership role knowing that they would be leading a majority-white-women’s gathering, and they never accommodated. They also welcomed white women as their sisters throughout.

I led the tactical team and coordinated the marshals. We thought about how we would react if there were counter protesters or other similarly hard situations. I learned how to think about the hard things surrounding a march and how to step out of my terror—and I did it with other women, with women leading the way.
