The streets of NYC will fill once again this Saturday, January 19 for the third annual Women’s March on New York City. The first march took place in 2017, as a demonstration in support of women’s rights and in resistance to a growing list of gender-related injustices during the inauguration of President Donald Trump. Last year’s march drew an estimated 200,000 participants. As with any jubilant mass display of human resilience, there will be street closings. Read on for info on where to march, how to avoid traffic snarls and what makes this year’s march different.
