Women’s March on Montana in Photos (UPDATED)

I have seen the future. And the future is WOMEN.

Today, women and allies from across the state (and no doubt beyond) descended on Helena for a sister-march in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington. It was one of hundreds of marches around the world, gathering an estimated 2.5 million people globally.

Facebook ‘registrants’ were up to around 5400 at the time of the march and organizers estimated 10,000 were actually there. Further details on that as they become available.

I had the pleasure of joining with friends from Missoula along with many from my Unitarian Universalist fellowship. Below are a few of my photos from the day.
