    What are they even marching for?
    we are marching for the awareness of the importance of women's rights, lgbtq rights, planned parenthood, black lives matter, climate change, education, muslim lives matter

    these of course aren't the only things we're marching for but these are some of the main things

    Do you realise, feminists, that because of this us lot on the right will become even stronger as so many people can't stand your childish, vulgar moaning over absolutely nothing. Let's hope Trump gets his skates on and defunds Planned Parenthood as soon as possible, it's what you all deserve after your pathetic behaviour.

    So why not march against Saudi Arabia and how they treat women. March against how most Muslim countries treat women and gays....or do you only march against white people!

    What's your opinion on Islam's views of women's rights and LGBTQ rights?

    Great turnout today at the women's march on london protesting the politics of fear and promoting equality and acceptance. I was there and it was definitely busy! Did anyone else go? What do people think of this movement today?
    This seems pointless and dim.

    I think you missed the suffragette movement by almost a century.

    Women have all the same rights men have. You are equal, as per the law.

    If you want more women in politics, run for Parliament more often. And aren't the heads of the UK, Scottish and N. Irish governments all women anyway?

    If you want equal average pay, work more hours, take less time off, and don't get married or have children.

    If you don't want to be the disproportionate victims of crime and violence, don't do anything, because you aren't.

    If you want more resources spent on your health and well-being than men (despite having longer life expectancies and lower rates of homelessness and suicide), again, don't do anything, because more resources are already spent on you.

    If you want more girls in university getting an education... You get the picture.

    But if you want to take to the streets and act like you're doing something important, go right ahead. Make a whole bunch of noise over your first world problems and non-existent oppression, you suffragette wannabes.
    I think it's more of a support protest of those doing the same protest in America... yaknow, against the president who thinks it's ok to grab women by the pussy without permission.

    protesting the politics of fear and promoting gullible naivety.*

    Nope you didn't fix anything mate. Think they had it right in the first place.

    I'm still not sure how trump is perceived as woman hating. What policies has he got that damage women's rights?? I'm not entirely sure how a 10 year old video of some locker talk is conclusive evidence of him being misogynistic either

    Oh boy it's like someone vomited up a stack of buzzwords that make me have an aneurysm. You could have shortened it to "marching to make ourselves feel good".

    Which is based entirely on some exaggerated bro talk he espoused on a bus like 9 years ago when he was essentially bragging about groupies who, to quote him, "let you do it."

    Lots of men talk like this in private. But suddenly everyone climbs up on their high horses, take it all seriously and act like their farts don't stink when Trump does it. It's all gotta be scrutinized and blown out of proportion.

    There's a lot of crap Trump has said that's worthy of our scrutiny and attention, but this isn't it. I highly doubt he actually thinks it's okay to walk around grabbing women's junk without permission.

    If you think it's OK and normal to talk about women that way then you are hanging around with the wrong sort of people. NONE of my male friends or close family would ever joke about sexual assaulting a woman. I am sure you will reply saying I'm being naive but I think you are the one being naive. I know it as a fact. It is not at all acceptable. 9 years ago he was in his 60s and certainly well into the age of knowing better. There's a lot of women that have claims that suggest he doesn't know better.

    And if you think guys who talk like this are being serious, you are very naive. Not all men talk like Mr. Darcy and Prince Charming. Welcome to the real world.

    he has apologised for what he has said and there's really not much else he can do. Something he said 9 years ago is by no means representative of his opinion on women now;You must be incredibly bitter and incapable of forgiveness if you think it is. Imagine if we were all defined by regrettable things we had said in the past,

    Madonna is an embarrassment. Calling for 'peace' and 'love revolution' just after saying she'd love to blow the White House up.

    What a virtual signalling old crone.

    I greatly regret not going to this march! I'm a guy and wanted to show my support too. I was ill in the morning and lazily slept in. It was historic. Well done to everyone who went!
