Victoria and Rhiannon each took a bit of a field trip yesterday. They participated in the #WomensMarch in St. Paul (Minnesota), along with roughly 100,000 others (and several million around the world). 🙂
Victoria went with a charter bus from New Ulm, a city about an hour from us, and Rhiannon went with a friend and some of her friends and their children in a van that left from Mankato. Poor Daryl had to leave at 5:30 a.m. with them to get them to their respective drop-off points so they could get up to the march in time.
They both had phenomenal times, to say the least.
Rhia stayed up late the night before embroidering feminist statements on her jacket. I’ll have to get a picture of some!
(I gave Toria that hat for Christmas. Wasn’t it perfect for the day?)
It was a profoundly empowering experience for both girls, and Toria called it one of the coolest experiences of her life.
I’m very proud of my girls (and all who marched around the world!).
