Before the Womens March on Washington, there was a lot of talk about how men wouldnt show up. There were stories about whether marching was un-masculineand handwringing over whether including women in the march name and brandingwas somehow exclusionary.
But in Washington D.C. on Saturday, January 21, 2017 men and boys of all ages came out in force to join the crowd. They marched with their friends, wives, mothers, sisters and on their own, proving that of coursemen are willing to be part of a women-led, women-forward movement. And of course men can be allies.
Here 15 men who joined the Womens March On Washington explain why it was important for them to participate.
