A march of ladies


It's the year 2017. Yet sometimes it feels like we live in the middle ages. People all around the world still fight each other over religious matters or matters of ethnicity. Or pretend to do so. People all around the world still make fun of other people's disabilities. People all around the world still can't accept the homosexuality as a natural state of being. People all around the world still think of women as inferior, behave violently towards them and deny them their human rights. And these people vote.

The result of all of this resentment and hate that grows among us is the election of extreme politicians - politicians like Donald Trump as the president of the U.S or the fascist parties that keep gaining ground on European parliaments. 

Donalt Trump is about to have his first day in office tomorrow. But also he will  confront a huge gathering. Ladies and all people who support the goal will march peacefully 
in Washington DC tomorrow. 

It all started  when Teresa Shook was so disappointed from the result of the elections that  she turned to Facebook and asked: What if women marched on Washington around Inauguration Day en masse? And after that everything went viral...

Today thousands of people have registered for the march. Also 616 "sister" marches are about to take place all over the world. I am very happy to see that a sister march is about to happen here in Athens, Greece as well. And I urge you to be part of it.

Some might say that this is another America oriented thing, that some might gain profit from it and other conspiracy theories which my mind can't even imagine. But even if there was any truth in all of that, I wouldn't care. Because tomorrow lots of people will just follow their heart, will unite and march for a cause so noble, so uplifting. I intend to join those people, support them. I want those people to lead and reform our world, a world where my newborn daughter is about to be bred.

Aren't you?
