New Jersey first lady reveals college sex assault to Women's March crowd

New Jersey first lady reveals college sex assault to Women's March crowd

Now the answer is coming into focus. But it also showed how polarized America is, with the women refusing to accept Trump as their president.

The demonstrations came one day after hundreds of thousands of men, women and children took to the streets in Washington, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles and other cities Saturday on the one-year anniversary of Trump's inauguration.

Leaders in the US say it is no small task to sustain enthusiasm and plot strategy in the face of policy defeats on a range of issues.

"We are saying no to sexual assault and sexual harassment".

Several hundred protesters also gathered in Palm Beach, Florida near Mr Trump's Mar-a-Lago home.

The #MeToo moment and allegations of men sexually harassing women, in particular, has resonated more with some women than with others.

She says the current administration represents "one of the worst times in our history" and that "women are going to be the ones that fix it".

"Unlike the MeToo crowd, they do not see all women as facing the same kind of abuse, and reject the idea that all women suffer from sexism in the same way", she wrote in an e-mail. Conservative women appeared to be a rarity.

Goldsmith was one of the estimated half-million people who converged on the US capital of Washington in last year's most high-profile women's march. Paz, a citizen of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma, attended the national march a year ago in Washington, D.C. Audience members joined in song as Emma's Revolution, a folk group from Oakland, belted out the lyrics "I am a woman and I have these rights", while CEO of the Women's Foundation of California Surina Khan spoke in support of access to abortion for students at public universities across California.

Poo herself embodies the merging of these strands of the movement. This year, she was in Portland, where she's lived since 1970.

In Houston, thousands of women, men and children marched about a mile from a park near downtown to a rally at city hall. Planned Parenthood funneled more than 350,000 such calls. Official estimates suggest that the Los Angeles rally saw the attendance of almost 300,000 people while NY saw 100,000 people coming out in the march to show their dismay with the policies and actions of Trump and his administration.

The furor about health care crossed usual partisan lines, and along with internal fractures within the Republican Party, prompted enough GOP defections to thwart repeated attempts to end Obamacare through legislation.

She said her attacker tried to stop her screaming by gagging her with a dirty crab apple he found nearby. "Women's rights are human rights", read another. She said she herself had been sexualized and seen her ability to make choices about her body taken from her.

Gender can alienate as well as energize.

Local resident Emaan Khawaja, 17, said the event is "monumental" for the city.

She urged the participants to organize, vote and run for office, particularly highlighting the need for the election of more women of color.

While crowds were expected in blue states, protesters also turned out in red states, albeit in smaller numbers.

Across the country, marchers were overwhelmingly white, although organizers said they made stronger efforts this year to connect with communities of color and pushed to register voters.
