no. 232

Last night, I sat in a D.C. hotel bar and overheard a woman say, “Those women marching in the streets today—disgusting.”

Five hundred thousand (and counting) “disgusting” women is what she saw in the city. Millions of “disgusting" women around the world is what she felt. 

I, on the other hand, saw this girl—a tender thread in the fabric of our democracy, who would someday weave herself into spaces only she could fill.
