Women's March Isn't Just About Women

It’s a march organized by kick-ass women to protect other women and all.

Women's March Isn't Just About Women

In case you didn't know, President-elect Donald Trump dropped the “elect” and the hyphen and officially became the 45th POTUS on the rainiest January 20th that California has witnessed ever since “A Cinderella Story” was released in your local theaters. Also in case you haven't heard, a lot of people of a lot of backgrounds are pissed off, angry, outraged, civilly protesting, and marching.

This led to January 21st when women, men, and children all over the world joined an originally grass-root organization, Women’s March, to march in major cities all over the globe. Though the main march took place in Washington DC, many more were organized in Los Angeles, Boston, Paris, London, Berlin, etc. The march exemplifies the demand of recognition the rights of women, LGBTQ community, people of color, and free practice of religion. It's mission statement includes:

“We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families - recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.”

Notice the phrase “We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children,” goes to show that the Women’s March is not only to address the potential harms and violations of human rights under Trump’s administration..

It’s is a reminder to the Trump administration that there hundred of thousands are observing them Big-Brother style and telling it that nothing can stand in their way towards progression— that includes people that aren't women.

There was a significant turnout of not only women but also of men and children. Hm wonder why? Because the oppression of women and targeted minority groups are just as effectual to men and children.

To move forward from the sh*tshow that was the 2016 election cam-PAIN, the next four years, and the rest of civilization, we must educate ourselves, learn from the masses.

1. Being able to understand why black people can’t breathe.

2. Understanding the fundamentals of feminism and how it is about the equality of all not just women overpowering the world as “femin-nazis” —because that’s not feminism.

3. How feminism can benefits men and extinguish the hyper-masculine dynamics and exceptions within our society.

4. Women have rights to their bodies and to their decisions because they human beings with choice.

5. Recognize the Muslin community as a target for racial profiling—especially at airports.

6. Use science to show proof that global warming is real and our world is doomed.

7. Black lives do matter.

8. Women want equal pay, it’s 2017 for crying out loud.

9. How immigrants not only deserve to live in our nation, but how they benefit our diverse progression, economy, and represent the basic ideal of our Constitution and how this nation was built.

10. “No” means “no.”

11. Institutionalize racism exist.

12. The Affordable Care Act is ObamaCare.

That above is just listing a few issues and why men and children must be educated on these diverse and complex issues that the people protesting all over the globe. Touching on these issues can move this nation forth to a stable, unified future. Some of these topics aren't even in the nearest vicinity of one’s common sense radar, but let’s change that. Hopefully the Women’s March help change perspective and open eyes to the close-minded.

Despite all the negativity that lingers around the executive branch, hopefully this movement has people questioning why all the negative attention has been brought upon by anti-Trump supporters, and to learn more about what issues were addressed.

And to educate this generation’s youth to become more “woke” about this movement, become more politically involved, more open to change, and motivated to change our nation’s mentality.

January 21st, 2017. Remember this date because it’s historic.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look. After a trip to LA when I was a sophomore in high school for dance, I fell even more in love with this utopia of a city and from that moment on, Los Angeles was that light at the end of the tunnel.
