March is dedicated to celebrating powerful women of the world.

The “Women’s 2017 March” was a march held the day after the inauguration of Donald Trump, January 21st, to protest for Women’s Rights and Gender Equality according to www.allure.com. Different women and men from all over attended several marches, brought signs, bags, and hats which represented Women’s Equality.

“As a woman I am important and deserve to be treated the same as any other men it does not matter what age, race or gender I am,” senior Giselle Blancas said.

Although Blancas was not able to attend any events she still believes all women are equal.

In Washington, D.C. one of the biggest ceremonies was held and many guest speakers spoke to share their feeling on Women’s Rights according to www.allure.com.

“I did happen to watch this over television and it really amazes me how many people believe in us women to know we belong in this world,” senior Paige McCaskil said.

All the marches led to one in Lubbock, Texas according to www.lubbockonline.com at the corner of University & 19th on the Texas Tech Campus women and men from all over the city were protesting.

“I was driving when I just saw a mob of women, men and even children with Gender Equality signs shouting and marching, I had never seen anything like this before in Lubbock,” senior Zechariah Lara said.

This March continued for hours and hours and as time went by it was huge, cops came and had to escort people out of the march.

“I actually attended the march here in Lubbock and I loved it, it was an environment where I felt safe to actually be myself and not discriminated for my age, racer, size and gender,” senior Brianna Regalado said.

It is not just in one country, state, or city as racism, equality and rights for individuals still continues to be a problem the world is still trying to fight. Equality is necessary for everyone to live a better life according to www.womensmarch.com.
