The #WomensWave Is Coming
Blue Wave, move over. It’s the Women’s Wave!

The first Women’s March was in 2017. It arose spontaneously from a shocked and pained grassroots response to Donald Trump’s assumption of the U.S. presidency. American Women marched to express outrage and disgust at Trump’s racist and misogynist propaganda; to resist a Trump Administration; and to protect the rights of vulnerable people. All around the world, women and men joined the demonstration.

It’s time to march again. “The 2019 Women’s March marks two years of resistance to the Trump presidency, two years of training new activists, and two years of building power… The #WomensWave is coming, and we’re sweeping the world forward with us.”

The Mission

Women’s March National explains their overall mission:

The mission of Women’s March is to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change. Women’s March is a women-led movement providing intersectional education on a diverse range of issues and creating entry points for new grassroots activists & organizers to engage in their local communities through trainings, outreach programs and events. Women’s March is committed to dismantling systems of oppression through nonviolent resistance and building inclusive structures guided by self-determination, dignity and respect.

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
