MarchForMe Offers Novel Idea For Women
Who Can’t Attend the Jan 21 March on Washington

The movement MarchForMe is urging women who are unable to join the thousands of women marching on Jan 21 to find a marcher to “carry their name” in order to add their voice to those calling for greater respect for women’s rights and support of those who feel excluded.

The Women’s March on Washington and marches in other major cities are expected to draw women from across the country to stand together to send a bold message of inclusion and solidarity to the new administration on its first day in office.

“Women unable to march in person can still feel a part of the historic day by finding a surrogate marcher who will represent them,” a MarchForMe spokesman said.

With the swearing-in of Donald Trump only two weeks away, women are encouraged to act now to link up with a surrogate marcher through social media and personal connections, and then on the day of the march to wear a nametag with the movement’s name---MarchForMe---and the name of the marcher carrying their name.

Marchers wishing to carry other women’s names are urged to offer to do through social media and personal connections. Names should be carried on paper or in a smartphone, the spokesman said. Marchers are encouraged to make a sign either to carry or to wear pinned to their coat with the number of women they represent, where the women are from (city, college, state or states) and the name of the movement---MarchForMe.

"It seems to me that our current cultural craziness is like shouting at an 8-month-old, "Noooooo! Do not pull back the blanket! There might be a snake! or a worm! or a centipede! or a revolutionist!" (<-E. Nesbit shoutout) These abilities unfurl in kids because they need to build on them. What do we gain by suppressing them, other than a false feeling of security and a smug sense of superiority?"

A lovely bit of fiction for the discerning 9-12 year old reader, or your inner 9-12 year old.
