Beaver County residents heading to Women's March on Washington

Beaver County residents heading to Women's March on Washington

The marches are inspired by the national Women's March on January 21 in Washington, D.C.

The march, that's expected to draw more than 200,000 thousand people to D.C. was started over concern that women's rights could be rolled back by Congress and the new Republican White House.

The goal of the march is to advocate for women's rights and the rights of minorities.

The March on Washington is not without controversy.

Alexandra Hackett Ferber, a co-organizer of the Women's March on Washington - PA Chapter, said it's estimated that roughly 15,000 to 20,000 people from Pennsylvania will attend. Shortly after the election, Teresa Shook from Hawaii posted on Facebook, "What if women marched on Washington, D.C. around Inauguration Day en masse?"

"I felt strongly that I needed to do something to voice my upset and dissent", she told AAP earlier in the week.

Buell - who moved to New Zealand 12 years ago - said she didn't see any danger of anti-women attitudes like Trump's taking root here. Not only do these posters highlight the historical importance of tomorrow's event, but they bear in mind the key aims of the March's organisers tomorrow, highlighting a variety of issues. These men and women are painting parachutes, a medium that is odd even for these more experimental types but is flawless for a march. "We're going to let you know that we want you to pay attention to women's rights and other organizations that have been kind of under fire here lately".

The Women's March Organization, which has headquarters in NY and Washington, D.C., commissioned the public relations, paid for the building, the artists, the supplies and even the pizza.

Madame Tussauds Unveils Updated Trump Wax Figures
Unlike the Barack Obama figure revealed in 2009, who was depicted smiling, Trump appears resolute and quite serious. This is, says Tussauds, the only place in the world where visitors can "meet" figures of all past presidents.

"It's a real turning point for this generation", she said.

Organizers of the local march say they also plan to collect hygiene products for women, children and babies for AWARE.

Horn said she is meeting a college friend in northern Virginia then heading to the march.

Buell said it was important for men to join in as well, and her sons and grandsons were marching with her. Join us at Kachemak Bay Campus for a community conversation to make new connections to make your voices heard.

Trump has come under fire for his attitudes toward women that emerged as he campaigned for the presidency. "They are saying to the public, 'We need to talk about these issues'".

"I'll be at the age of having to worry about this when he's the president, and that's just very scary to me", she said.

IN ADDITION to the march in Washington, sister marches across the nation and around the world are planned to take place simultaneously.
