Women’s March Knoxville

/ posted in: Current EventsFeminismSigns and Wonders

I was in Knoxville TN over the weekend and decided to hit up the Women’s March there. I’m so glad I did.

I made a little video from my pictures and video

I loved the Indian girl at the end of the video. She was so excited because the crowd behind us had started chanting “Love Trumps Hate”. I told her it was because of her sign. She was walking beside me for a while chanting “Love Trumps Hate” in this little tiny voice. She was adorable!

It was raining so eventually my signs melted.  But lots of people came up to me to take pictures of them.  A physics professor from the University of Tennessee hugged me and got his son to take pictures of us together.

East Tennessee is a very conservative area so it was great to see this turnout.  Part of me just wanted to yell though, “We wouldn’t be here if some of ya’ll hadn’t voted for him in the first place.” but I held my tongue.

Did anyone else march anywhere?
