Attendance at the Third Annual Women's March Falls Short

By InHerSight

The third annual Women’s March in Washington, D.C. garnered a noticeably smaller crowd on Saturday compared to past years. The march this year was largely centered on celebrating women's progress and achievements this year, since an unparalleled number of women were elected to Congress in January. Many attribute the “Year of the Woman” to the inspiration and momentum stirred up in the first march in 2017. However, turnout at this year's march was partially affected by controversy surrounding its founders' ties with Louis Farrakhan, who is openly anti-Semitic. Due to the controversy, several smaller marches spun out in different cities. Drawing in fewer numbers and national figures, the march has lost momentum since the first year, when over half a million people crowded the streets in Washington.
