It was a long ride home.

Plenty of time, on the bus back to Michigan, to consider the Women’s March on Washington. To share new stories with new friends, or to dissect one’s own role in the protest. To absorb the waves of media coverage and social media posts, from effusive to cynical. To calculate the success of the fledgling movement, or reflect on the path that led to Washington. To wonder if everything had changed, or if nothing had.

At Saturday’s march in Washington, and its sister marches in every U.S. state and around the globe, mostly women, mostly white, but millions strong, rallied against threats made by President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans to dismantle the Affordable Care Act; to overturn the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade; to dilute the social safety net until it no longer serves as a safeguard; to harass and target immigrants, women, LGBT Americans, people of color, or anyone for whom myths about America’s past greatness are a hollow lie; to turn our schools into ideological experiments at the expense of our children.
