On Jan. 21, 2017, the day after President Trump’s inauguration, millions all over the country gathered to advocate for women’s rights. In Lansing, the state capital of Michigan, people of all ages brought handmade signs, listened to speakers and shouted chants. Gretchen Whitmer, former Democratic member of the Michigan Senate, is currently running for Governor of Michigan in the 2018 election. After greeting protestors, she gave an uplifting and well-received speech to the crowd.
