Wikipedia: 2017 Women’s March
The Women’s March was a worldwide protest on January 21, 2017, the day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump. Tensions rose due to his statements, considered by many as anti-women or otherwise offensive. It was the largest single-day protest in U.S. history. The goal of the annual marches is to advocate legislation and policies regarding human rights and other issues, including women’s rights, immigration reform, healthcare reform, reproductive rights, the environment, LGBTQ rights, racial equality, freedom of religion, workers’ rights and tolerance.

People of quality don’t fear equality.
People whose sense of self relies upon feeling superior to another group, upon having more rights & more resources & respect than another group, fear equality very much.
