A group of US women’s rights activists will take on President Donald Trump and his administration as part of a new initiative to support women’s reproductive rights.
The Women’s March, which began in Washington on Friday, will take place on Saturday, March 14 and will end with a rally at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC, on March 17.
Organizers say the march will show that women’s issues are important to the nation and the world.
The march comes as Trump prepares to sign an executive order that will make it easier for businesses to discriminate against LGBTQ people.
The new executive order will allow businesses to fire employees for being LGBTQ.
Organizer Molly McGrath told The Associated Press that the women who will march on Saturday have already been inspired by the actions of the suffragette movement.
“We have a history of organizing for women’s liberation, and the Women’s Marches have been very successful,” she said.
“And we are just looking for more to do.”
Trump and Trump’s cabinet members are also expected to attend.
Vice President Mike Pence and White House chief of staff Reince Priebus are also set to attend the march.
Women’s rights groups have long fought for a woman’s right to vote, and they have long argued that women who choose not to have children face a steep economic disadvantage.
