The Women’s March and the Power of Demonstration
The purpose of this project is to study and evaluate the recent Women's March and similar, less known, marches. The Women’s March has resulted in hundreds of thousands of people across the country marching for the rights of woman after the inauguration of President Trump. This march shares similarities to many past demonstrations. In this project, we will examine and compare the recent Women’s March and previous, smaller marches and demonstrations. This project will seek to explore the meaning behind the Women’s March and similar movements, examine the potential impacts of these movements, and determine if there are better methods or procedures that could make these demonstrations more beneficial to their cause.
