We were left with nothing but laughter, to later find out that he had torn his ACL. “My jump was excellent,” he said. “It was my landing I needed to work on. It was funny. It was part of my career. I talk about it all the time. You have to laugh about it.”

Last Saturday, January 21st, 2017, will go down in American history as the day of one of the largest, worldwide protests ever with over 5 million global participants (womensmarch.com). Men and women united in each of our 50 states, as well as cities abroad such as Berlin and Amsterdam to stand up for love, equality, and overall American values.
The long term purpose for this protest was to protect and secure American entitlements that could be in jeopardy. Even after Trump’s inauguration, the people remain unsilenced and demand justice in all aspects. Though the intended outcome of these rallies may never happen. What were they trying to accomplish???
Marchers explicitly expressed disgust towards President Trump’s past actions reflecting racism and sexism. He’s threatened laws protecting women’s and reproductive rights, marriage equality, health care, and many more. All of which protesters plan to maintain.
According to Ai-jen Poo, Director of National Workers Alliance, all 50 states were intended to come together to pinpoint issues and prepare for the 2018 midterm election.
These issues were also identified by David Brock, a democratic activist who assembled a group of liberal donors to discuss possible lawsuits and challenges against President Trump.
Other important names included Madonna, Janelle Monae, and America Ferrera, all of which gave speeches in support of women’s rights. Zendaya, Bella Thorne, and Rowan Blanchard were also spotted supporting the cause.
Unfortunately, the rally’s anticipated resident, Hillary Clinton could not be there to march with the women. Though she took to Twitter to pay respect and admiration to those who contributed:
Scrolling through images of the #womensmarch is awe-inspiring. Hope it brought joy to others as it did to me.
-Hillary Clinton, Twitter, January 23, 2017
This rally was successful in the aspect of attracting a diverse, younger generation and the new democratic majority, to something other than pop culture and modern technology. Well known influencers’ participation was admirable, showing youth that their opinions matter, despite what it does or doesn’t get done.
Though these women may not accomplish anything politically, they’ve drawn attention to undiscussed topics we all relate to in some way. Like Trump says, the people now run America.
