On Saturday, January 21 more than 3 million women, men and children took to the streets to protest a litany of grievances aimed towards the 45th President of the United States and his inner circle.
The march, which has been called the largest in American history, garnered the attention of many celebrities, civil rights and feminist icons, but it was normal citizenry who overshadowed the many famous faces.
Many of Represent's own employees attended the event in downtown Los Angeles and were met with a jovial camaraderie, each marching for their own reasons, be they immigration reform, women's rights, education, or the ACA, also known as Obamacare.
"The Women's March on Washington was an incredible rally," Cailley Dischinger said about the sister event held in Los Angeles, "I loved hearing the impassioned women leaders speak and found it empowering and liberating to be surrounded by such a unified community."
Jenna Holtzman agreed saying, "I'm not a political person but I feel passionately about equal rights - not just for females, for everyone."
In fact, it wasn’t just our employees who showed up at the many marches, our company's apparel– Hope Solo’s The Future Is Equal & I’m With Her and Her and Her - were present in cities across the country!
