Crowds gather for the women’s march to protest Trump and the Supreme Court candidate



Women and allies gathered in Washington, DC and several other cities across the country to protest President Donald Trump’s appointment of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court and to urge women to vote in the upcoming election.

“I want my country back,” said Barbara Moore from Arlington to CNN subsidiary WJLA.

The crowd marched from Freedom Plaza to the National Mall, some carrying signs saying, “Hell, no, Amy has to go!” and “You call us evil because you’re afraid of what strong women can do.”

Participants in the women's march are greeted by protesters in support of Supreme Court candidate Amy Coney Barrett outside the US Supreme Court.

Karen Ehrgott said she had traveled from the Philadelphia area to attend the march to protest Barrett’s nomination and to validate it before the November 3rd election.

“It’s a mess. It’s really, really a mess. I’m very afraid of our democracy,” Ehrgott told CNN. “I thought it was thriving and nothing could ever happen, but it’s clearly a lot more fragile than we realized.”

Trump has cited the November 3 election as a reason for the Senate’s swift confirmation by Barrett, a federal appeals judge who would be his third candidate for the nine-person bank. The president has said he believes the Supreme Court can ultimately decide whether he or his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, will win the election.
Dozens of women's rallies were scheduled across the country in March, including one in Nashville, Tennessee.
The event on Saturday is the second women’s march this year. Partly due to the pandemic, the crowd was much smaller than the January 18 event and even larger than the very first women’s march in 2017, which was possibly the largest one-day protest in US history.

Simultaneous marches took place in other cities, including Denver, New York, and Nashville.

The Women’s March organization has been in mounting pain since its first show of force in 2017.

Controversy and allegations of anti-Semitism surrounding its founders ultimately led to three of them stepping down from the board last year. They had denied the allegations. The women’s march then appointed 17 new managers to the board.
