Andrea Cristina Mercado

This weekend I marched in Washington, DC, with my younger sister, in a contingent with hundreds of immigrant women, women of color, domestic workers, Native American women, and grassroots environmental activists. Like so many who attended the Women's March, I was awestruck to see the sheer size of the march, the number of women who mobilized -- many of whom had never before attended a march -- to proclaim their commitment to fight back against attacks on our bodies, our families, our communities and the planet. It was an outpouring of bold opposition.
