Looking back at the 2018 Women’s March Oakland
on February 5, 2018
Over 40,000 women and their allies spent Saturday, January 20, marching in Oakland to support women. It was the second annual Women’s March Oakland; the one in 2017, coinciding with the inauguration of President Donald Trump, drew a crowd estimated at up to 100,000 people.
Around the rest of the country, the 2018 marches drew more than a million people.
This year, organizers will focus on registering voters, leading up to midterm elections in November, as well as on helping more women run for public office.
