Lowell, MI – Women from all over the USA and the UK gathered in different places to march for Women’s Rights on Saturday, just one day after the inauguration of president, Mr. Donald Trump.
Lowell resident Sharon Ellison, former mayor pro-tem for the city of Lowell, is among the many women voicing their rights in the historical march following the inauguration.
Three weeks prior to the event, the charter buses from Grand Rapids heading for the Women’s March were sold out.
Local marches are currently being held in Grand Rapids and Lansing.
Ellison is representing many local women carrying a sign with their signatures.
John Grote, editor at Discovery Communications, commented on Facebook:
“I am perplexed at the media coverage or should I say lack of as of this morning of the Women’s March,” he wrote. “I get the National Prayer service is important, but history is being made.”
Follow us as with Sharon Ellison as we go through the day, and into history.
