The Women’s March on Nairobi was incredible!

I was so proud to participate in the Women’s March on Nairobi this weekend, in solidarity with women marching all over the world! We had a peaceful march through Karura Forest, making our voices heard. Thanks to all of you who came out! I haven’t seen any official estimates, but I would put the group at nearly 1,000 strong! Here are a few photos, if you’d like to see…

Thanks to all of you who came out and marched with us! I feel full of energy and vigor, and am looking forward to our next event promoting women’s rights, and the rights of all marginalized people. Stay tuned for more! #WomensMarch #WomensMarchNRB

    Awesome! It is so empowering to see women united around the world for women’s rights, for human rights. I marched in South Bend, Indiana in the U.S. We had a similar crowd size but we were marching downtown. Not quite as beautiful as your natural setting.

    I was not able to march (was really sick) but wanted to. So awesome to see the great turn out. Sometimes I feel helpless as an American abroad. It’s heartening to see that we can still make our voices heard and do something!

    A woman’s place is in the revolution!

    Where was the march held? Looks like a forest of some sorts…

      It was in Karura Forest, which was famously saved by Wangari Mathai. And thanks so much for your kind words! 🙂
