Against the backdrop of City Hall, activists, politicians, and artists spoke from a truck bed to a sea of fists, signs, and pink pussy hats that filled Civic Center Plaza on Saturday, as thousands gathered to rally before pounding the pavement for the 2018 Women’s March.

This year's march, on the anniversary of one in 2017, centered not on protest but on action. “In the year since the first march till now, we are laser-focused on the ballot box,” said Aimee Allison, president of Democracy in Color, who spoke at the rally.

Last to speak was Andrea Dew Steele, president and founder of Emerge America, who attended with her daughter Carmen, 14. “She’s such a feminist already. It gives me a lot of hope for the future that young girls are seeing that women are not there yet. We need them really fighting hard for equality. As my sign says, today we march, tomorrow we run.”
