For the fourth consecutive year, thousands of locals took to the streets to march downtown in support of women’s rights. This year had a slightly different focus due to the upcoming elections but still featured female empowerment slogans along with jokes and off the cuff banners. Other rights that jumped on the bandwagon were those from the LGBTQ community, immigrants, race, anti-war and more. There were approximately 30,000 attendees (lower than the last two years). Featured speakers were: Eric Garcetti, Caitlyn Jenner and Maxine Waters.
The main event – as in previous years – took place in Washington. Even though there were less people marching, the “energy” was described as being “still there.”
