Women's March, London, 2017

Imagine having to protest inequality in 2017

| “Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence.”—Leonardo da Vinci

Politics isn’t a common topic on this blog, not because I’m not interested or don’t care but because this is supposed to be a place to appreciate life’s good things; our political situation is not a good thing and it’s only getting worse.

So yesterday I, and 100,000 others, marched on London. I rallied because I’m tired of misogyny, inequality, racism, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia, fear-mongering, climate change, ignorance, unbalanced power and wealth, and the morals of those with all the power and all the wealth.

There were elements of the day I didn’t agree with (why women’s march?) but it was a peaceful protest with an atmosphere that made me proud to be a Londoner and a feminist. Sometimes all you can do is show up, and if all you can do is show up it’s important that you do show up—even just in spirit.
