Marching for Young Women

A year ago I organized our Region’s “No Limits for Girls” and “No Limits for Women” for the Women’s March. It was a challenge, particularly with material [distress] I have about being a Person of the Global Majority. Nearly thirty women and men, ages nine to seventy-nine, came together to make art, discharge, and demonstrate as RCers. It was a big contradiction [to distress]. I learned a lot and had plenty to discharge about.

This year I focused on my teenage daughters, who wanted to join the march, and on their peers and interested parents—a mixed group of different heritages and religions. I wanted my daughters to experience what it was like to plan with their friends. We had a gathering in which the girls each decided what was most important (and amusing) for them to say and then painted that on posters. It was a lot of fun.

I am marching as a parent and as a citizen of this planet. I am marching mainly for young women to have a strong, clear voice. I am marching to show that women will lead in protecting the earth and addressing climate change.
