In the wake of the 2018 midterms that propelled an unprecedented wave of women to Congress, Chillicothe Sister March announces a Women’s March in Chillicothe in coordination with sister marches in cities and communities across the globe.
The march in Chillicothe is one of hundreds happening nationwide on Jan. 19, 2019, commemorating the 2017 Women’s March on Washington. Chillicothe’s Sister March will be held at 11 a.m. at the Ross County Courthouse.
“On January 19, people from around the country will unite in Washington, D.C., to make their voices heard,” said Beth Workman, a spokesperson for Chillicothe Sister March. “We’ve been organizing locally to advocate for the policies that matter to us and impact women’s lives, and we’re flooding the streets in solidarity with our sisters in D.C. to remind the country that Chillicothe resists.”
Two years after the historic 2017 Women’s March that was the largest single-day protest in US history, women, femmes and allies will march in towns, cities and communities from Chillicothe to Los Angeles as part of a nationwide #WomensWave.
“The 2017 Women’s March galvanized this country and birthed a new wave of the women’s rights movement,” Workman said. “That wave is taking to the streets, here in Chillicothe and nationwide, and we’re coming with an agenda.”
