On Saturday 20, 2018, women all over Houston gathered together to march in Downtown, Houston for building progressive power for the 2018 elections.

 

Women met up at Buffalo Bayou Waterworks Building to start marching to City Hall. The Houston Police Department guided the March along the route for the women’s safety. All marchers gathered at 10 a.m. ready to protest and take a stand for all the women in Houston and the United States.

 

At City Hall, Houston musical artists Kam from the Suffers and DJ Gracie lead the rally of more than 20,000 marchers. Mayor Sylvester Turner spoke at the protest, applauding the women and recognizing how women in Houston have leadership roles in Harris County and the Houston area. “Next year I’ll be standing with you as well. And the year after that and after that—until all our voices are heard,” said Sylvester Turner according to Houstonia. “The causes are just, and it is time to stand. I hope this fire will continue to burn. We need to maintain this fire and elect a whole lot of women.”

 

Last year, the Women’s March of 2017 was against President Donald Trump’s inauguration, this year the protest focused on other subjects as well. While women’s rights was in focus, many of the speakers addressed immigration, gun control, and many more.

 

The Women’s March of 2018 was a great success, and Houstonian women can’t wait for the next one to be announced.
