On January 21, 2017, five million people in 82 countries and on all seven continents stood up with one voice. The Women's March began with one cause, women's rights, but quickly became a movement around the many issues that were hotly debated during the 2016 U.S. presidential race--immigration, health care, environmental protections, LGBTQ rights, racial justice, freedom of religion, and workers' rights, among others. In the mere 66 days between the election and inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States, 673 sister marches sprang up across the country and the world. ABRAMS Image presents Why I March to honor the movement, give back to it, and promote future activism in the same vein. All royalties from the sale of the book will be donated to the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, the Transgender Law Center, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Having devoted thousands of unpaid hours to voluntary activism, first street-level, and later financial activism, I find nebulous activities, be they marches, protests or whatever, to not only be of questionable value, but also of suspicious origin. When the Taliban were gravely mistreating Muslim women in Afghanistan, one of the few voices to sound off was Mavis Leno [comedian Jay Leno's wife/partner], but few American women came to her side then, as the Clintons not only supported the Taliban over the moderate Northern Alliance, they allowed them into America, which addled Americans tend to conveniently forget?! [And Afghanistani women lived in a secular society prior to Jimmy Carter's move to destabilize that government back in the 1970s.]
Women are frequently the victims of lunchtime headchopping in Saudi Arabia, yet little is heard of that. I am highly skeptical of this march, as the organizers appeared to have received money through outfits funded by George Soros [who has actively lobbied in the past against // buy American \\ clauses and movements] and the Koch brothers - - neither of whom have our or women's best interest at heart?!
