Women’s rights activists are planning a massive solidarity march on Washington, D.C. to protest the election of Donald Trump as president.

The “Women’s March on Washington” will begin with a rally at the Lincoln Memorial Jan. 21, one day after the Inauguration, and organizers are calling on all defenders of human rights to stand with them to send a bold message to the new administration that women’s rights are human rights.

“The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us -- women; immigrants of all statuses; those with diverse religious faiths, particularly Muslim; people who identify as LGBTQIA; native and indigenous people; black and brown people; people with disabilities; the economically impoverished and survivors of sexual assault,” organizers said on a national Facebook page. “We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.”

The rally will begin at 10 a.m. and will be followed with a march to the White House.

Organizing committees are forming in all 50 states. Volunteers in New York can fill out a survey at http://bit.ly/mwmorganize and more information can be found at NYC-Downstatehttps://www.facebook.com/events/320865168287826.

Let's begin with moron Whatever From Queens. You are most like inept at whatever job you have. Lou, you are clearly a woman hater and most likely supported Trump's degradation of women. All of you are simply what gives negativity to humankind. May you become homeless.

Joe Moretti from Jamaica says:
Amazing, or really not amazing, to see some of the most idiotic and childish comments by grown men. Yes, Queens may be a third world country borough, but it is also filled with many unintelligent people as well as the first three comments prove. I also love how they all hide by an anonymous name, what cowards.

RR (female) from Bayside says:
As always, anon25 and Joe Moretti, your comments are spot on. I commend you for pointing out the obvious about the 3 truly ignorant and clearly uneducated, comments from the typical scumbags posting on this site such as Lou, whatever and yshaggy. I would say all 3 got served a nice cold plate of whoop a$$ if I say so myself.

These brainless people can march, stomp their feet, act stupid all they want. Let them be their usual unproductive selves. Maybe Joe should join them.

Kenny Mann from Sag Harbor says:
It's fascinating to note that Trump supporters seem to have developed a language all their own. Where did it come from? What strange, moronic ideas have they developed? Were their parents just as unintelligent and uneducated and uninspired? Did they learn this from their teachers? I can understand anger and frustration at being felt left out or condescended to or looked down on. But to express universal hatred towards women who march for their rights is downright idiotic. Do women express the same hatred when men march for their rights? I suppose the men we are talking about in this exchange have never marched for anything - they are so entrenched in their infantile and uninformed opinions that to actually get out there and do the work that democracy requires would be beyond them. Is that true, fellers? Is that who you really are? Do you treat your own wives and daughters this way? And do they respect you for it? Are you really Americans who understand the actual meaning of your own ideals? Anyone from another country who read your words would spit on you in disgust.

Let's talk again in 4 years' time.

By the way, despite my name, I am a lady.
