A Little History About the Women’s March

The Women’s March is an effort to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities. Working together, the organization intends to create transformative social change. This women-led coalition educates women on a diverse range of issues like ending violence against women and improving the rights of women, workers, immigrants and other oppressed groups.  The group also serves as an entry points for new grassroots activists & organizers to engage in their local communities through trainings, outreach programs and events. The movement is “committed to dismantling systems of oppression” using the principles of nonviolent resistance.

On January 21, 2017, a Women’s March on Idaho took place in Boise in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington. It brought together thousands of Idahoans to raise awareness for women’s issues.  It was one of many ‘sister” marches which took place throughout the country.
