The people of Toronto marched in the face of terrible weather on Saturday, January 21st for the third year of Women March On: Toronto. Despite temperatures dipping lower than -15 C, hundreds stood in the snow while speeches were given concerning intersectional feminism and government policies. This was my first ever march, and it was worth the frostbitten fingers and toes. The love that I felt in Nathan Phillips Square that day was astounding, and being there with the Common Mag team was a special experience.
With my camera and poster in hand I wandered through the crowd and captured some pictures of the people who were there to fight for equality. Mothers and grandmothers brought their daughters, friends stood united. We will not stand in the shadows and stay silent. The moment for change is here, and we are going to fight like hell for it.
