Women, Supporters March In Rapid City To Assert Women's Rights As Human Rights

Jan 22, 2017

On Saturday South Dakotans joined millions of people across the world for a one-day rally. The Women's March on Washington was established as a show of solidarity and a rallying cry that women's rights are human rights. Companion marches took place in all 50 states and across the globe.

In Rapid City, protesters filled the City Administration parking lot, marched through a few blocks of downtown, and then gathered in Memorial Park.

The mood was joyful, but the signs--many of them in response to the rhetoric of the previous election cycle--were defiant. Since the election, there have been appeals for understanding, for people to work out the differences that have divided the nation.

SDPB's Victoria Wicks asked marchers how, and where, that conversation can take place.
