In Rapid city, hundreds joined a march chanting for women’s rights. Organizers spoke to a crowd of women, men and children following the march.

The crowd in Rapid City chanted the same words but many marched for their own reasons.

Participants in the Women's March in Sioux Falls have different reasons for demonstrating. Some say it's political; others say the gathering was not about how a person votes. Others say they gain inspiration from being around people who stand up for women's rights, gay rights, Native American rights, and more. In this discussion, SDPB's Kealey Bultena talks with In The Moment's Lori Walsh.
