In the midst of the #MeToo movement, when new allegations of sexual harassment regularly make national headlines, the Women’s March on New York City brought more than 200,000 people of all ages to the Upper West Side. Held on the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s election, people took to the streets to call for change in the White House as well as in their day-to-day lives.
