On the latest episode of the Volta Insider podcast, host Rachel Greenberg discusses her experience covering the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday, January 21st. The Women’s March was one of the most attended national protests in American history with an estimated 2.9 million attendees.
Greenberg talked about meeting men and women that have never protested, travelling from across the country to our nation’s capital. Many of the people she interviewed supported different causes, but held the common belief they were showing their support for the equal rights of women in America.
In covering the march, Greenberg said:
“I was not surprised by the enthusiasm of the crowd, but what struck me was the sense of camaraderie that encompassed the march. It was entirely peaceful, even joyous occasion for the protesters. Young children, the elderly, people of color, all marching side-by-side in peaceful solidarity. For as big of a protest as it was, not a single arrest was made.”
