WOMEN’S MARCH is a story about democracy, human rights, and what it means to stand up for your values in America today. On January 21, 2017, hundreds of thousands of women marched on Washington, DC. That same day, hundreds of sister marches took place across the country and around the world.
Shot on location in five U.S. cities, the film explores several women’s motivation to march. For some people, it was their first time marching. For others, it was the continuation of a decades-long fight for human rights, dignity, and justice. For all, it was an opportunity to make their voices heard.
It grew into the largest one-day protest in American history.

"Every time I get discouraged, I remember I can watch this remarkable film again and have my spirits lifted, as they were the day we marched together. As another woman in her 80’s, I particularly resonated with the images of Shira, the woman in the film in her 80’s, with her hearing aids, her glasses, her oxygen tank, her DNR and her wheelchair in order to be able to join her friends for the local march. She says what I believe. 'I’ve been marching since my 30’s, but the job isn’t done yet, so I’m marching now.'” - Sylvia Boorstein
