Sunday, January 22nd, 2017. New York City – Yesterday, Saturday, January 21st, more than 1 million people attended the Women’s Marches in the country and thousands more attended marches in other countries.
Organizers of the march said on their website: “The Women’s March on Washington aims to send a message to all levels of government, including but not limited to the incoming Presidential administration, that we stand together in solidarity and we expect elected leaders to act to protect the rights of women, their families and their communities.”
How many people attended the marches in the United States of America? Jeremy Pressman and Erica Chenoweth say the estimate 1 (low) is 3,160,203 and the estimate 2 (high) is 4,683,098.

Today is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade! Roe v. Wade legalized abortion 44 years ago.
“Abortion has been safe and legal in the U.S. for more than 40 years, and we refuse to go backwards.”_Planned Parenthood
“An overwhelming majority of Americans continue to support keeping abortion legal and accessible. What’s more, these numbers have only grown over time as more of our friends and neighbors support keeping the government out of our personal medical choices. With seven-in-ten Americans supporting legal and accessible abortion, that’s not just a majority, that’s a consensus.””_James Owens, NARAL
