Women's March

As organizers prepare for another Women’s March later this month, there’s a split in the movement between some women of color and former march leader Vanessa Wruble, who says she feels she was forced out of the group’s leadership in part because she is Jewish. The rift has gotten more public exposure after a recent story in The New York Times.

Across the nation and the throughout the state, people took to the streets this weekend. Thousands showed up in Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, Houston-- and beyond, for the second annual Women's March.

The signs were as diverse as the crowd.

Marchers — many of them women — are descending on Washington, D.C., to send a message about abortion to the Trump administration and the Republican-led Congress.

If that sounds like déjà vu, it's not: What the organizers call the March for Life is a protest against legalized abortion, unlike the Women's March last week, which included support for abortion rights in its platform.
