I am marching for the strong women who have stood their ground quietly but now need to have a voice. I am marching for my father, an Italian immigrant who has lived and worked hard in this country twice as long as his native Italy, but was unable to have a voice in this election….

I am joining the march to support the rights of women and all people at risk of losing their healthcare in this new administration. As a psychologist and someone with muscular dystrophy, I see myself and my patients being at risk for losing a safety net in the face of medical emergencies. It is in…

I am marching today so that as women we reach our full stride without hurting or hindering someone else. To me that means all of us – whatever race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or who we support politically. That in the face of hateful and discriminating rhetoric, unequal opportunity we stand together true. That we…

As a woman with multiple sclerosis I am joining with all women in solidarity and support for a woman’s right to make medical decisions for herself and for a woman’s right to be treated equally regardless of her disability, ethnicity or sexual orientation.

Now is the time  to speak my truth (even through slurred speech); to stand up (via my lift chair) for myself and others’ rights; to fight injustice (via support of said insitutions); and join a communitiy of like-spririted people (virtually) to safeguard our liberties as loyal Americans. Born in Savannah, GA, I moved to the…

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, about 56.7 million people have a disability. I am one of them. As a women with a disability I stand for my rights along with those of other women, with and without disabilities. Every day, I contribute to society.  I help others.  I am valuable. But having a Service Dog…

I’d like to participate in the march, but can’t. I need a lung transplant and am unable to walk long distances. Access to affordable healthcare is important to me as I work towards my goal of getting new lungs. As a woman, and as someone with a pre-existing condition, this is important to me more…

My picture is of my niece. She has a developmental challenge, but she has had a life of love and dignity through her own courage, the loving work and courage of her parents, and the availability of community and health services.  She is holding a quilt I made for her. We both have physical challenges,…

I am marching because when I was in college I was taught by then professor, the late Senator Paul Wellstone, the true meaning of the quote “We all do better when we all do better”.  I’m also marching because despite having several different mental illnesses and anxiety that would never allow me to be in a…

I cannot walk very far or stand for any length of time but I want to add my name to the Women’s March in Washington on January 21, 2017. I think it’s important for President Trump to know that millions of women expect, no demand, far greater respect than he’s shown us to date.
