Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 Presidential campaign sent shock waves through the women’s rights movement.
That event helped sparked the first Women March in Seneca Falls the day after Trump was inaugurated in January 2017.
A crowd estimated at 10,000, far more than expected, attended on a warm, sunny day. The second Women March in January 2018 drew an ever bigger crowd, estimated at 15,000.
Last year, the 3rd annual march was in freezing temperatures, and the crowd size was down to around 4,000.
But organizers feel the fourth year of the Trump Administration and his policies and attention focused on the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment on women’s suffrage will draw another large crowd to the Birthplace of the Women’s Rights Movement, a three-day event scheduled for Jan. 17-19 in both Seneca Falls and Auburn.
