Canadian women join massive march on Washington

SHARE

SHAFAQNA- Hundreds of Canadian women who carted signs and flags to the U.S. capital for a massive rally for women’s rights were greeted Saturday with cheers and shouts of gratitude by Americans supporting the march.

As the group wound down the streets of Washington, D.C. — many wearing pink knit hats or carrying signs emblazoned with the maple leaf and the slogan “sisters of the north” — residents came out onto their porches to offer words of encouragement, and in at least one case, free coffee.

Some American marchers expressed surprise that the group had travelled so far to take part in what’s been dubbed the Women’s March on Washington.
