Thousands join US women's march despite discord


As in earlier years, women were expected to join demonstrations in cities across the United States, and around the world. Among the protesters was Nydia Leaf, an energetic, pink-hatted 86-year-old taking part in her third women’s march. The original march helped spark a rise in women’s political activism, with a record 131 women now serving in the new US Congress. One Jewish march organizer split off and founded a parallel organization, March On, which held a separate rally in New York. Democratic New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who was part of the women’s wave elected to Congress in November, attended both rallies.
