March organizers perfected in the mid-year elections this year with the theme "Listen to our vote."
Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johannson, Viola Davis and Sarah Hyland They were among a long list of famous people who turned to massive crowds when they reached the end of the march in Grand Park and City Hall. Here's what they had to say:
"This march and this movement is much more ambitious in scope and scale and extends beyond a political actor or even A political party What we are asking for is a sustainable and systematic change to the experience of women and girls in the United States, a change from fear and intimidation to respect, humiliation to security and dignity. equality of remuneration and representation. "
" I continue to hear a particular complaint about this cultural shi and perhaps you as well. Calling this puritanical movement or a return to Victorian values, where men can not behave or speak sexually with delicate, delicate and fragile women, I want to tell you that the system works He's a Puritan, maybe men can say and do whatever they want, but women can not. The current system inhibits women from expressing our desires, desires and needs, from seeking our pleasure. "
" While I also mean different things to different people, for me, it's simply the ability to empathize with the visceral realities of this condition. I want to keep going forward. And for me, moving forward means that my daughter grows up in a world where she does not have to be a victim of what has cruelly become the social norm. That she does not have to fit in the bonds of the feminine condition. The time in the feminine condition is over. …
"I am facing you, someone who is empowered, not only by the curiosity about me and the active decisions that I can finally make and stand, but by the brilliance of this movement, the strength and the unity that this movement has provided gives me the hope that we are moving towards a place where our sense of equality can really come from within us. "
"I always present myself as a prize-actor but my testimony is of poverty, my testimony is that I was sexually assaulted and I saw a childhood that was taken from me, and I know that every day I think about it, I know that the trauma of those events is still with me today. And that's what takes me to the voting booth. "
" I ask all of you to be the team members for every woman in your life, you refrain from judging. understanding is the well of empathy, here we all have the power to make sure that our daughters, nieces, granddaughters, great-granddaughters, grow with a mentality, that if you come from one of us, you come from all of us. "
"We have a racist in the White House, we have a sexist in the White House, we have a lying ogical pathology in the White House, and it is tearing the fabric of our democracy, and when we all come together Last time, we had power and women, women gave us power …
"And women continue to give us power. We have seen him with more women who are running for office, more women who take the real power they have and it is with women that we will take to this country and return democracy to where it belongs. "
" But , men, we can not limit ourselves to reserve our listening of topics that any person with the least decency should pay attention to. We have to listen to women. not only because we are being accused, but because they must be included. We can not be a great country until women not only have a seat at the table, but how about this? actually they are sitting at the head of the year 2017 could be called the year of the word. We need 2018 to be the year of presentation at the polls. "
" If we have learned anything this year, it is that we are not alone. We are not alone. Millions of women have marched, millions of women have raised their voices and told the world, hey, M eToo. And now, united, we have declared that time is up. Time is over. The time is over for men to harass women. And attacking women. And get away with yours "
