Six months since the Women's March: A look back at the historic day


Friday, July 21 marks the six-month anniversary of the historic Women's March on Washington -- causing many to reflect on the powerful global event.

The rally's mission was one of unity, bound by the principles of ending violence, reproductive rights, worker's rights, civil rights, LGBTQIA rights, immigrant rights and environmental justice. That rallying cry clearly struck a chord with citizens around the world, and the Washington Post has since referred to the event as likely "the largest single-day demonstration in recorded U.S. history."

"This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up."
