Rita Rosen Poley attended the Women's March of January 21, 2017, in Philadelphia, PA.
I am pleased to include her photo and comment in the first posting of the WE WHO MARCH blog.
"The 360 degree presence of purposeful solidarity and joy overwhelmed me.
Wherever I pointed my camera I captured an eloquent story. This moment of
quiet reflection conveys the deeper meaning of the March and our coming together."

Women's March, January 21, 2017, Philadelphia
And I, Ellen, chose this photo because it conveys so much: the woman's concerned look,
pussy hat, and black mittens; the multitudes behind her; the reminder that women will raise
our voices against those who would silence us; and then the sign reminding us of this
moment when we are finally, increasingly speaking out against perpetrators of sexual harassment--
and we know who is the elephant in the room.
