Watch for a huge wave of pink to descend on Washington DC today.

And it will be larger than the inauguration.

The Women's March on Washington is today, and marchers not only in DC but across the country are wearing pink "Pussy Hats" to take back the word used by Donald Trump on that bus.

And these marches, I hope, will lead to a great deal of further activism against the Trump agenda in the months ahead.

What are your plans for marching today? Check social media to see if there is a march in your area, and if you can go, do it! (Hats aren't required but don't be surprised if someone offers you one...knitters and crocheters have been very busy since the election and pink yarn has run out in several vicinities!)

Can you help us out?
