Danielle and Laurie
On January 21st, I joined millions of people worldwide to protest the presidency of Donald Trump and stand in defense of human rights. During the march, I photographed a few of the 20,000 Arizonans at the Phoenix Women's March, and asked what motivated them to be a part of this historic day.
What's your name and why are you here?
"My name is Laurie, and I'm here with my daughter today because we have unfinished business. My husband asked me today if this was about Trump, and I said it's not about him. It has nothing to do with him. This is about women in the 70s who didn't get equality. This is about women in the 1900s who were fighting to get the right to vote. This is about Rosie the Riveter that won the damn war for this country and then was sent back into the kitchen. This is about every woman and all the people in this country who need to see the fight for equality."
"Danielle, and I'm here today for a multitude of reasons. First which, just to stand in solidarity with other women. I think we're in a new wave of feminism and we really have to stand together, and then yeah, just in general, I don't think it's a legitimate presidency for a multitude of reasons and additions, so just here to stand together with everyone out here who wants a better future."
