Early on the morning of January 20, 2018, more than 20,000 people began their march to City Hall. Adorned in pink knit hats and carrying signs with slogans like “Girls just want to have funDAMENTAL rights,” the marchers joined thousands around the country participating in the 2018 Women’s March.   

While the 2017 March was a result of immediate backlash against the election of Donald Trump, this year, marchers supported the MeToo and Time’s Up movements and showed that they could not be silenced. They marched from Buffalo Bayou to City Hall, where they were greeted with speeches by Sylvester Turner, Annise Parker and the wife of a DACA recipient.

“It was really inspiring to march with people from so many walks of life and to see all the different issues represented,” freshman Rachel Tompson said.
