owlmoose: (think)
I went to the Women's March in San Francisco today. Because there was an anti-abortion protest earlier in the day (organized months earlier -- they do a march here on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade every year), city officials asked the organizers to make their event later, so the rally started at 3pm. It was a little weird, being at home and watching all the pictures and reports coming in on social media when my march was still hours away.

I ended up only walking about half the march route, for two reasons: rain, and T came along with me despite crowds not being at all his scene, and I didn't want to push him into overdoing it. Still, even if I didn't participate as fully as I could, I'm so glad I had the chance to be part of this amazing and historic event.

Some pictures I took are posted on my Tumblr, and I linked to a few others.

I haven't been to many protest marches, but I always leave them feeling supported and invigorated. Now to turn those feelings into action, tomorrow and every day that follows.
