Hudson Valley women’s marches set for day after inauguration

This Saturday, many thousands will converge on Washington D.C. for the Women’s March on Washington.

“The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us,” reads the mission section of the march’s website.

Up to 200,000 participants are expected in D.C. Meanwhile, concurrent “sister marches” are being organized around the nation. Here are three happening nearby:
