Mother and activist, Nikki, pushed a stroller and held her three-month-old son. 

“I want to show him that women are people too who deserve, without apology, whatever they need,” she said.

Women weren’t the only individuals attending the march; men donned shirts saying “this feminist has balls” and pushed strollers.

“I think exposure at a young age is important,” said Susie Bhatt, mother of an 18-month-old boy, who sat atop his father’s shoulders marching quietly. “We’re raising allies!” Bhatt said.

The National Women’s March took place from the State Capitol through downtown Honolulu on Oct 17.

Jingling tambourines and honking cars filled the air as a crowd of more than 200 people marched for women everywhere. 

This year, the march has been hosted twice after a controversial upcoming election. 

 

However, this year it comes after the recent death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the controversy over filling her seat before the election.

 

“Racist, sexist, anti-gay, Donald Trump, go away!” chanted the chorus of people marching. 

The marchers varied in gender and age. Grandparents held signs saying, “my granddaughter should have a choice” and parents pushed infants with signs taped to the strollers saying, “I may be napping, but I’m still woke.”
