Womens March Jan 2017 Rockerfeller Center


Text by MFM Member BAASSIK (Pamela Jennett)

I have been to many marches and parades before; but I did not expect the overwhelming feeling that I experienced at the NYC Women’s March on Saturday, January 21, 2017.  The sounds. The colors. The music!  It was a little scary on one level and exhilarating on another. When I exited the subway, I was lost in a sea of people with costumes, signage and many people! (The slogans were rather creative! It is amazing how creative humans can be when oppressed!)

As a bass guitarist, the songs, beats and chants caught my ear…please do not make me try to recall any of them! There were so many! However, I joined in, lending my voice to the masses. All of the chants said the same thing; we ALL want equality, justice and peace in all forms. We want control of our bodies. We do not want war!

All of these people were in one place-all wanting a voice in this “new” time.  (Is this time really “new”?)

It was an honor to be a part of history. “Her-story”. “Our-story”.  And the story continues.
