Comments: Women's March on (fill in your location)

I saw hats in a variety of colors: nobody was enforcing pink.
But the other complaint is a little more interesting, I think, because I did see signage that really did equate genitalia to femininity and legitimacy (as well as signage that explicitly included trans women).
We didn't have a march at all, but a rally, though the post-rally exodus did kind of turn into marching at a few points.

Yes. Lots of different marches, all lumped together.

The more I thought about it all, the more it bothered me. There are too many groups of women who feel marginalized within the overall "women's movement" (if such a thing actually exists).

I agree that in some cases, these groups were actually treated very poorly by some of the other women. (Cultural insensitivity does seem to be a hallmark of US society.) What I don't understand is if there's anything I can do about it, as a white woman, other than draw attention to the occasions.

It occurs to me, somewhat belatedly, that I should have included links to specific examples.
