Frigid temperatures aren’t stifling the voices of women and men at Wisconsin’s Women’s March.
Yesterday, about 700 people showed up to the state Capitol to demand equality for women and accountability from the Trump administration. Women’s Marches were held around the nation yesterday.
But, all of them had one thing in common: a smaller turnout than past years. Two years ago, over 75-thousand people gathered at the Wisconsin state Capitol for a Women’s March following the inauguration of President Trump. Some are crediting the decline in attendance to accusations of anti-Semitism from within the Women’s March organization. Women’s March co-president Tamika Mallory has come under fire for her associations with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan who has said anti-Semitic remarks.
