Women's March on Montpelier

On January 21st, just one day after the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States women from Montpelier joined 5 million others around the world as they took to the streets to demand equity and racial justice. It was the largest protest in the history of the United States. In tiny Montpelier, the turnout was the largest Green Mountain history to descend upon the Capitol. By 3pm, more than 15,000 protesters watched as speakers, musicians, and poets made their way to the podium planted atop the granite steps of the capitol.
