Hundreds of women, children and men joined the women’s march through York on Saturday (January 21).

The impressive turnout sent a strong message that ours is a city that values and promotes equality, diversity and tolerance.

One of hundreds of marches across the world in response to the inauguration of President Donald Trump, organiser Cindy Campbell said it sent a message:

one of hope, one of unity and one of love.

We cannot live in a world that is built on hatred, waiting with apprehension and trepidation, wondering when the next blow will strike and who it will affect.

This is about more than Donald Trump.

Some have been fighting for a lifetime for equality, some may be roused to action after the events in 2016, but we are rallying in unity and solidarity with a deafening roar; we will be heard.

As these posts and pictures show, the message came across loud and clear…
