Mighty Girls Rise Up
At Women's Marches Worldwide

Over 150 photos of Mighty Girls standing up for girls and women's rights at the historic Women's Marches held worldwide on January 21.

Millions of people took to the streets at Women's Marches around the world on January 21, 2017 in an unprecedented show of solidarity and support for the belief that women's rights are human rights. At the 914 Women's Marches that were held in all 50 states and over 60 countries, girls and young women participated in vast numbers. This day gave these girls an unforgettable life lesson about the power of their own voice in creating change – and the responsibility of every citizen to use that voice to stand up for their rights and the rights of others.

In this blog post, we're showcasing just a small fraction of the incredible photos of Mighty Girls at Women’s Marches worldwide that have been shared with us. Thank you to the many people who have shared their march stories and photos on A Mighty Girl's Facebook page. And, most importantly, thank you to everyone who participated in a Women's March – while the fight for girls and women's rights will continue, our voices on this inspiring day of action were powerful and sent the clear and unmistakable message: "We're not going away."

She spent many many weekends this summer and fall canvassing for Hillary and going to rallies and campaign events. I was worried she would be crushed after the election, but her first reaction was 'maybe another girl will run for president and we can work hard for her too.' #nationofhermiones" – Naomi G.

Houston, TX

"There was a 22K+ turnout for the march on Houston's city hall, and it was absolutely incredible. Our mayor and multiple other representatives, and the HPD Chief of Police, all joined us to speak and stand together in an incredible show of unity. Our police chief spoke against issues of corrupt policing, and all of the HPD officers who were there alongside us were so wonderful and open. It renewed faith for so many women; and I was so glad to have my little girl there at my side (and on my shoulders, when the march to city hall was almost through and her little legs got tired, haha) through it all." – Kendra L.

They walked for miles, they chanted, and hopefully learned a lot about the immense power of large numbers of concerned citizens assembled in peaceful but furious protest. Yes, they learned a few choice new words, but I'd much rather them be exposed to it in this context than in vapid entertainment products. And most importantly one day they'll be able to say that we didn't stand by idly." – Ezio A.
