The Women’s March On Washington is happening come hell or high water, march leaders say, and it’s largely thanks to three women: Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour.
The demonstration in Washington D.C. on Jan. 21 ― the day after President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration ― is designed to say “You know what? Women do matter, our voices are strong,” said national co-chair Bob Bland, speaking with her three fellow co-chairs Mallory, Perez and Sarsour in a conference call on Wednesday.
Unfortunately, the event has had a rocky start. Though more than 120,000 people say they plan to attend on Facebook, the organizers still don’t have a permit. The original location, the Lincoln Memorial, will not be available. But the march will still take place, they say ― the question is simply precisely where and when.
“This march is happening,” Perez told The Huffington Post on Thursday.
The march has more to overcome than logistical concerns, however
