During the past year I have traveled across America, as the contentious campaign of 2016 resulted with the election of Donald Trump. This was an unexpected wake up call. How would Trump's administration affect our lives? Countless groups formed and moblizied around issue after issue. It was the Women's March on Washington, on Janary 21st, that sent a strong message to Trump and his conservative administration. Over a million came out
From all walks of life, they came and marched to demand our right to choose. My Body My choice!
We will not go back.
In 2004, when I had the rare opportunity of photographing and interviewing Betty Friedan, sheturned to me with a feisty grin and said, "be careful, watch your back, they're always going to be coming for your rights."
Liberating ourselves, we will then become a major political force, perhaps the biggest political force for basic social and political change in America.
