On July 9th, thousands of women, female-identifying people and male allies gathered in Washington, D.C. to hold space and be heard. We gathered to voice and direct our rage at the seat of our government, the one building we were told was the sacred seat of power our entire lives. The very House that has failed to protect the women, the marginalized, the poor and the suffering of this land year after year. The very House that we were brought up to believe was the apex of power in this world. The very House that we look to when the dark forces of the world turn on our citizens and threaten our liberty. The very House, that for many years now, has failed to keep us safe, failed to keep us supported and failed to recognize our right to exist.
