Women’s rights are everyone’s rights

I marched for my disabled mother who raised three kids by herself. I marched for my fiancé, for all of her dreams and goals; the love I have for her being the biggest motivator. I marched for my sister; she prides herself in being able to live on her own and pay her own bills. I marched for the women I work with in my job and the women I work with in the various organizations and with the community; they often are more likely to volunteer and put in work for the sake of the people.

I marched for the women who couldn’t march. I marched for the women who raised me and influenced me. I marched for the women in my life who have always supported me.

Finally, I marched for me because there are as many women who rely on me as much as I rely on them. When their rights are taken or threatened, we’re the ones that will be next.
