Washington, DC – Thousands converged on Washington, DC today, January 19, for the third yearly Women’s March. The protest comes amidst the Trump administration’s attempts to legitimize misogyny and attacks reproductive rights, trans rights, the rights the survivors of rape on campuses.

The huge turnout came despite a concerted attack by right-wing commentators and Zionists. These reactionaries are distraught because some of the march organizers have demanded justice for the Palestinian Rasmea Odeh, a heroic Palestinian American who faced trumped-up charges and who was later deported.

Large numbers of the print edition of Fight Back! were distributed at the protest.
