Donald Trump creates massive “safe space” to keep feminists away from inauguration

  • The Women’s March on Washington was slated to take place at the Lincoln Memorial on Jan. 21. 
  • According to a Facebook event page, more than 138,000 vowed to march.
  • The event hopes to “send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights,“ according to the event page. 
  • But now, marchers will have to find a new space to send that message.
  • On behalf of the Presidential Inauguration Committee, the National Park Service has taken precautions to secure large areas of Washington, D.C. in observance of Inauguration Day, the Guardian reported. 
  • The legislation also established a "massive omnibus blocking permit” for several of D.C.’s landmark political locations — including the Lincoln Memorial — for time both before and after Jan. 20, when the president-elect will officially be inaugurated. Read more

Women planning mass march on Washington when Trump takes office

Women anxious that a Donald Trump presidency in the United States could set back or destroy many of their rights are planning a massive march in Washington one day after he is sworn in. 

The march is planned for Jan. 21, 2017, the day after Trump is to be sworn into office, at Washington, D.C.’s Lincoln Memorial.

The Lincoln Memorial was the site of the famed civil rights march in 1963, when Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech.
