The NH Women’s March for Civil Rights in Portsmouth, NH

While DC had the Million Women March and other major cities across the states filled with women, Portsmouth held the NH Women’s March for Civil Rights in solidarity. Occupy New Hampshire Seacoast expected hundreds to show up – instead, they got thousands.

It was more of a rally than a march. There wasn’t much marching. But there was a lot of music, singing, and the bustle of energetic activists. This was not an angry event. The square was filled with smiling faces, colorful signs, and a feeling of camaraderie – instant belonging. It’s comforting to be around those with similar views and similar fears.
