Women’s March on Washington – Hawai‘i is the state wide organization dedicated to keeping the Women’s March movement alive.
The Women’s March was the idea of Hawaii’s own Teresa Shook. Teresa like many of us was dismayed by the outcome of the national elections. So she took to Facebook after learning how to create an event in the group “Pantsuit Nation” and made an event. She went to bed with 40 people saying they were with her and she woke up the next morning with 10,000 people saying that were going to go!
So on Saturday, January 21, 2017 women and their supporters marched on Washington, D.C. in numbers this country has not seen in several generations. Not only did women and their supporters march on Washington, D.C. they marched all across the country and all across the globe! There were over 675 sister marches with more than 4.8 MILLION attendees!
Here in Hawai‘i we had events on Kaua‘i, O‘ahu, Molokai, 2 on Maui, Kona and Hilo all of them with record number of attendees.
The marches were just the beginning – this website is dedicated to keeping the movement alive and moving forward!
