“The Year of Our Awakening”: Global Protests Mark Anniversary of Women’s March & Trump Inauguration

Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets across the country this weekend to mark the first anniversary of last year’s historic Women’s March protesting President Trump’s inauguration. As Democracy Now! broadcast from the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, protesters braved freezing temperatures and a snowstorm to take part in a Respect Rally. We feature the voices of longtime women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred and actress Jane Fonda, and speak with actress Tessa Thompson, who played the superhero Valkyrie in the film “Thor,” Samantha “Sam” White in “Dear White People” and Diane Nash in “Selma.”
