I want to do something positive and make sure things that I value, like a woman's right to choose and affordable health care act are upheld. I like that the marches are inclusive and a way for women to show their strength and power and effectiveness." Jacqueline Rickard is a business owner.

Then the next day they took to the streets with pots and pans. Don't give up." - Danielle Schäfer
