On Saturday, Jan. 21, more than 25,000 people—men, women and children—joined together to take part in a Sister March in downtown Pittsburgh in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington. The group convened at the City –County Building and then marched down Fifth Avenue to Market Square, where they listened to speakers and performers. A second march, Our Feminism Must be Intersectional Rally/March, took place in East Liberty at the same time, and stretched over a half mile to the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, where there was a Summit Against Racism.
