On January 20, 2017, my mom and I left Toronto, ON for Washington, DC with a group of “Democrats Abroad”. The following photos, videos, and social media screen grabs capture part of our amazing experience marching on Independence Avenue with 500,000 people, in-solidarity with millions more across the world.
The pussyhat project. The ultimate, collective sign, was the pussycat; or, should I say, the 2 million pussyhats around the world at the women’s marches. They were the most effective signs at the #WomensMarch. By wearing the hat, and seeing it on others, it felt like we had a connection that could not be broken.

The Women’s March, and specifically, the Women’s March on Washington for my mom and I, was an amazing experience because we felt so present all day, and the feeling has not dissipated. It felt like a new wave of feminism took shape on January 21st.
