These marches are in big and not so big cities all across the nation today, from Los Angeles to our own, right here in Kansas City.
But there are protests in other nations, too, and not just by or for women.
When was the last time a newly-elected world leader, let alone our own newly inaugurated president, just put into office, was protested around the nation? More to the point, when was the last time a newly-elected national leader was ever protested across the globe, around the world?
Would that be never?
Isn't that instructive? Doesn't that tell us something?
