Our 2018 Women’s March Coverage

Photo and video highlights, plus a reading list.

Indypendent Staff Jan 21

Hundreds of thousands of women and their supporters took to the streets once again on Saturday, one year after what was possibly the largest protest in U.S. history. The central theme of this year’s Women’s March, as outlined by its liberal organizers, was getting out the vote ahead of the 2018 mid-term elections, but there were also vocal contingents voicing support for criminal justice reform, access to reproductive health care, immigrant rights, and for detained Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi.

A five-woman reporting team from The Indypendent — Camille Baker, Emily Bell, Lydia McMullen-Baird, Erin Sheridan and Caitrin Sneed — was on hand in New York City, where approximately 200,000 people took part, providing live, on-the-ground coverage via Twitter and Facebook. You’ll find highlights below, as well as a brief Women’s March reading list featuring news and analysis on topics including #MeToo, feminism and the intersections between a host of struggles and women’s rights.
