Number of marchers in the 2017 Women's March: somewhere between 3.3 and 5.2 million, nationally, --depending on the "NEWS" source.
Number of marchers in the 2018 march: about 2.6 million (roughly HALF of the previous year)
Number of marchers in this year, 2019: somewhere between 700,000 and 800,00. very roughly, about one-fifth of two years ago. Why? Lots of confusion and disagreements about aims, suggestions of anti-semitism, but most importantly,FAILURE TO ACHIEVE ANYTHING.

I reject your notion that the TriValley Women’s March has failed to achieve anything. These events foster relationships between the young and old event organizers, build a sense of community among those interested in women’s issues and let us know we are not alone in our aim for a more perfect union. If one more person is inspired to register to vote, to cast a ballot or to run for office — as has happened in previous years — much has been realized. You negative dismissal of action speaks volumes about you, not the March.

Don’t be so hard on @Nancy. You can reject the comments made; however, diversity of thought should be respected. As you well know, free speech is under attack by the left. If they control your words, they control your mind and actions. Don’t let that happen.

To move on, unfortunately the Women’s March has relegated itself to two topics: hate speech towards Trump and the right of abortion. Now, I’m not intending to debate or air on either, for that would would go on forever in this venue, but I would address your issue about registering the young to vote. Let’s be honest, your intentions are to register those young minds to vote for you’re partisan views, not to be open to thoughts and ideas on both sides of the topic. Remember, your head gear, signs, and posters give you away.

Have a great March.

“There has been a very long history of women fighting for their rights that we are celebrating here today."

"Moms Demand Action" isn't. They are trying to erode 2nd Amendment rights for women(and men).

Be skeptical of the "common sense gun safety" slogans, the need to ban firearms for the law abiding to "reduce violence", "gun violence" being a kind of disease, or that gun manufacturers/supporters of the Constitution are somehow facilitating crime. Criminals do not care about/will not comply with any so called "gun safety" measures - or bans on legal firearms purchases.

If diversity of thought should be respected why are you bizarrely accusing Nancy of intending to register young minds to vote for her partisan views? Also you are nonsensically claiming that the women's March is only about the topics of "hate speech against Trump and the right of abortion". Clearly you weren't there and have never been to a Women's March or you wouldn't be making these weird claims. Are you okay? We're worried about your lack of cohesive thoughts.

You need to review the content of your comment. I’m defending @Nancy and commenting about what @125 wrote. @Grant, are you projecting? Have I nailed it regarding the March? You don't believe diversity of thought is important?

@Grant, actually, are you ok?

It's a far left, "feel good" waste of time.

Did they wear goofy hats that look like female genitalia like the New York and DC marchers. Good way to make a point.

I just have two words for all the women...AYN RAND

If anyone's intellectual development ended at Ayn Rand, then they are not mentally old enough to vote.

Much more productive devoting efforts to getting others out to vote, than to try to persuade any such Randy fantasizer.

Yeah, so strong and bright they need affirmative action to get into STEM programs and reduced-standards physical fitness tests to join the military, police and fire fighting professions.

But other than that, yes, strong and bright.
