My VOICE, my BODY, my STORY, United for HOPE!

My VOICE, my BODY, my STORY, United for HOPE, a young girl wrote in her sign in the last year Women's March.

Here we're again just a day from the second round of the women united for their rights.

The Women, all over the United States, will march tomorrow, January 20, 2018, to backrest human rights, for a world of opportunities of all races and genders. According to organizers the Women's March is meant to "send a bold message to U.S. administration and to the world that women's rights are human rights".

The Women's March event originates as a worldwide protest on January 21st, 2017, in Washington D.C. immediately after the Donald trump inauguration as President of the United States.

Last year the 5,246,670 people, who participated in the Women's March, were aimed after the anti-women statements of Donald Trump. This year it seems that the purpose of the rallies and the amount of participants is expanded.

At the second anniversary of Women’s March, people of all ages are going to protest against the powerful men who abused their position #MeToo and to declare that #TimesUp for all underprivileged women.

Last year The Women's Marches were peaceful and streamed live on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.

Here’s what you need to know before you hit the streets tomorrow:

  1. Check the weather where you’re marching

  • Dress warmly with warm socks.

  • If you bring a backpack, keep it small for security concerns.

  • If you bring an umbrella, make sure it’s a poncho one will be easier to move around in, and will be less likely to poke or drip water onto your fellow marchers.

  1. Check your local march’s regulations about materials of a protest sign.

  • The regulations won’t allow wooden or metal handles —use the tube from a roll of wrapping paper, reinforced with duct tape, instead. Or just hold your sign with your hands. (And don’t forget to write on both sides!)

The ACLU reminds you of your pertinent constitutional rights at protests:

  • To peacefully assemble

  • To photograph or videotape the police

  • To protest in public spaces

  • To photograph anything in plain view

Stay safe, stay warm, and stay loud.

Looking forward to see what New the United Women will bring to the world.
