Thousands of people gathered at Aloe Plaza on Market Street in Downtown Saint Louis on Jan. 20 for the second annual Women’s March. The march began at 10 a.m. and traveled down Market Street. The march ended at Luther Ely Smith Plaza. The march was approximately 1 mile. There were two stages where several speakers gathered and gave short speeches about many different social issues.
The Women’s March is a women-led, nonviolent protest that was created to protest many different social issues such as racism and sexism. The first Women’s March was held after the inauguration of President Donald Trump on Jan. 21, 2017. The second march was held a year later to continue to protest these issues. (Photos by Alex Rowe)
