    The protests yesterday were taking a stance on the views Trump has voiced in the past against women. It was a warning by women that such misoygnist views will not be tolerated, just because a man like himself is in charge. So, how were they useless?
    But not bothered enough about the absence of women's rights in other countries/regimes to have protest marches.

    A couple of points:

    1.The thread is about Western feminists, not the few feminists in the Islamic world brave enough to protest the misogynist cult of Islam.

    2. And also The Womens March did have protest in the Islamic world as well.

    When and where please.

    FYI comparing the blue haired land whales that pass as feminists in the West with Malala is surreal at best.
    1. Okay.

    2. Jan 21st 2017 in Jordan, Saudi Arabia (skeptic about this one), Lebanon, Indonesia, Malaysia and Nigeria.

    Plus there are other legitimate concerns to be had about a majority conservative congress/SC. Things like creationism being mandatory in schools could be brought back/implemented.
    Individual states are responsible for the regulation of school curricula; not the federal authority.

    The right not to be regarded as second class citizens or even objects.

    If the president of your country shows off an attitude towards women that is degrading, others will follow, it will tell others, the president does it, so can I.

    It's the same principle as was behind Meryl Streep's criticism of Trump regarding the mocking of a disabled person.

    What most people, sometimes purposefully, refuse to understand is that there is more than just "well the law says you are equal so you must be". A nation's attitude is not just determined by what the law says...
