This year is the third year women across the country are participating in this event.
Pittsburg’s SEK ..the local organization which bring awareness to feminist causes, decided to put on the event
Officals say they want people to be aware that even in small cities they can still accomplish a lot for equal opportunites for women.
Participants walked about 10 blocks downtown Pittsburg and at the end they gathered where locals spoke on behalf of the movement.
“Things like LGBTQ rights voting and how important voting is violence against women.”said Jessena Schultz, SEK Now
“We’re going to have a different range of ages that are participating in this march today..we’re hoping to have you know our mothers and our grandmothers..as well as some of the younger kids the younger generation who are the feminists of the future.” said Ashley Caldwell-Wetzel, SEK Now
Even though the women’s march is only one day, SEK advocates promote equal women’s rights year-round.
