Last January, women got together all over the country to march for their equality and to protest President Trump, starting what seems to have become a tradition as this years women are doing the same. While it is great that they have the passion to protest, there are also some negative issues associated with the marches.

The biggest issue behind the women’s marches is that many of the issues they fight against are social, not political. Many of the inequalities women face are issues the government cannot do much to change. Of course, protesting does raise attention for the issues, which may bring the social change they want.

Though the marches might not create much change, the fact that women are protesting at all is a high point, as the marches show that they are utilizing their rights to freedom of speech and assembly. What makes this country great will not be what they’re trying to gain. What makes this country great is the fact that our citizens have the ability and the passion to protest and make their beliefs known in this way.

The great thing about the marches is it shows how passionate American citizens are. There are huge amounts women who are so dedicated to bringing change that they are willing to go out in masses to protest and fight for what they want. If that isn’t something wonderful, then nothing is.

The Oracle also asked some Orcutt Academy students what they thought about the Women’s March. Check out this link for the results:
