At the Women's March on Washington, which was attended by 500,000 people, there were a noticeable number of mothers with their daughters. Each pair had their own reasons for showing up--some mothers who had protested before wanted to show their offspring how it's done, while others were encouraged by their kids to be there. There were also a lot of mothers who brought daughters too young to talk to the march. Here, photographer Marvi Lacar asks these duos why they marched--together.
Willow Morales: "We are here today to raise our voices with everyone else about the injustice and the bewilderment that we feel around this election."
Helen: "This is outrageous. We needed to defend our rights and women and to have someone, a misogynist in the highest office in the land, with my daughters, this is absolutely unacceptable. We can't just sit back. We have to come out and support and stand for what we believe."
Erin McGowen: "I think it's important to have a peaceful protest to show how many people have a lot of problems with the president."
Christina LeBeau: "We don't like the direction our country has taken and we think that Trump was elected illegitimately. I think we have a president now who has legitimized bullying, and hatred, and racism, and violence, violence against women and assault on women's rights. I just don't think that this is the kind of person who should be leading our country. And that's completely separate from the fact that he's unqualified."
Tamar Schoenberg: "We want to protect women's rights. We want to protect immigrants. We want people to not fear living in this country. We want them to feel that they're cared for and that they're rights are looked out for. We want to protect human rights. We want to protect the world. We want to protect the environment. We want to protect the Affordable Care Act."
Jaime Chao Mignano: "We got a lot to say, we want to see a better world for both of us."
Eileen Hines: "We are here to show Trump that we care about human rights, and women's rights, and equal rights for everyone."
