TallMike, the name grew out of enormous frustration by women about the election of a person who admitted to sexual assault and battery, has a history of demeaning women, and is a known misogynist. It was organized by women. The Women's March was always welcoming to all, but initially focused on women's rights, women's safety from sexual harassment and assault, women's reproductive rights. After the initial organization, we learned there was much broader frustration, so it expanded. It's a wonderful name.
Diane, I can understand why the name of Saturday's gathering in Washington feels exactly right for people who have felt connected with the Women's March movement from the beginning. But what about all the other people you are aiming to include in the event? The name seems to identify the event as specifically for women. However, that description has become more and more inaccurate as plans and intentions have evolved to address the plights of immigrants, the religious, the disabled, the LGBT, etc. and even to "empower all people across the nation" (a current quote from the march's website). How are all those people going to recognize that the gathering is for them too? Please tell us how it works in practice, after the event is over.
women are disabled, women are immigrants, women are religious, women are LGBT and most of all they are inclusive.
