Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies (GWSS) faculty, staff, and students participate in the Womxn’s March on Seattle

Kari Lerum and Julie Shayne at the Space Needle
On Saturday January 21, 2017, Seattle was one of at least 670 cities around the world where folks turned out en masse to denounce the Trump administration’s misogyny, xenophobia, racism, queer phobia, ableism, and general disregard for marginalized communities. GWSS faculty and students marched with friends, family, and allies, declaring intersectional resistance to the Trump administration’s anti-women, anti-queer, anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, and anti-people of color policies. Check out this Facebook photo album that GWSS Student Representative Kyra Laughlin and IAS faculty member Julie Shayne created to document the GWSS presence at the march. See images from marches all over the world.
