Women March Across The Country… And Onto The Ballot

For the second year in a row, millions of people flooded the streets in women’s marches across the country. Launched in January 2017 by the inauguration of Donald Trump, the first women’s march was estimated to be the largest single-day protest in U.S. history. This year, however, women weren’t just marching to protest the current administration. 

WBEZ reporter Carrie Shepherd joins the Morning Shift to talk about the goals of this year’s women’s march, the “Power to the Polls” initiative, and the future of the movement.
