Women’s march in Washington and around the world for our hope for Human Rights and Humanity as a whole

Women’s March Floods Washington, Sparking Rallies Worldwide

Sister marches have been organized in all 50 states, several U.S. territories and countries around the world. They have tried to express solidarity with the aims of the original march: opposition to President Trump’s agenda, and support of women’s rights and human rights in general.

Given the quirks of time zones, many of those marches kicked off before the event that inspired them. In Sydney, London, New Delhi, and other cities, demonstrators broke out their signs and pink hats before even their compatriots in D.C. could.

Straight from NPR and member station reporters on the ground: Here’s a glimpse of the marches Saturday — across the country, and around the world.

Life goes on no matter what happens in the world or in the political arena.  After listening to Hillary Clinton gives her acknowledgement of defeat speech, I drove into doing the things I love most, artwork.  I visited the BBC News site yesterday and found, “In pictures: Trail showcases Glasgow murals”, I enjoyed and loved their artworks which I would like to share with others.  Please enjoy the artwork in which the artists convey their feeling, philosophy and their talent to the world.
