I am joining the online march as a positive move for women to show their strength and give each other support in these troubling times. The election of Trump and the UK vote for Brexit are markers of a world where people have given into fear. They are right that other people are responsible for their marginalisation – but they are blaming the wrong people. It is not the vulnerable who are taking money and opportunities from them, but the rich – people like Trump. We need to find a way to educate people to realise that. But for now I am happy to express my solidarity with those who are marching, and to say, I’m with you. I have bipolar disorder with anxiety so I find crowds difficult.
My name is Lizzie and I live in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, in the UK.
