"If particular care and attention
is not paid to the ladies,
we are determined
to foment a rebellion."
Abigail Adams, March 31, 1776
I was sidelined by a bad cold from plans to take part in today's Women's March, but here's a shoutout to my family and friends who did march. So proud of all of you for standing up for women's rights:
Washington, D.C. -- Paula flew all the way out from Washington state with her husband and daughter (from Texas) to march.
Spokane, WA -- My daughter marched with three friends from school.
Olympia, WA -- Many of my friends marched there. I think a lot of Washington marchers opted for Olympia rather than face the logistics of getting into and out of Seattle.
Boise, ID -- STITCH sister Judi and her husband and daughter marched in the sleet and snow. I especially loved Ed's sign, which said he's a grandfather marching for his wife, daughters and granddaughters.
Port Townsend, WA -- My sister, Kathleen, marched. I was supposed to join her, but this nasty cold kept me home. I monitored the marches all day in my pajamas.
San Francisco -- My nephew and his wife marched.
Rockford, IL -- My daughter-in-law's mother and sisters marched, as did many of my old friends from when I lived in Rockford.
Have a colorful day!
