tall ugg boots sale Thousands turn out for Women’s March on NJ

The second Women’s March on New Jersey was held Saturday in Morristown.

An estimated 15,000 people turned out for the event, many decked out in pink hats with signs in hand. The event coincided with other women’s marches around the country.

Participants say they’re pushing for change on the local and national level, on issues including women’s health, immigration and funding for Planned Parenthood.

Many attendees expressed frustration and outrage with the Trump administration, and said they aim to mobilize women to the polls in November. The march was held on the anniversary of President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Among the attendees was New Jersey’s first lady Tammy Murphy, who shared a personal story of sexual assault. She said the attack occurred while she was a sophomore at the University of Virginia. She said she was walking along a path when a man grabbed her, pulled her into some bushes, tried to take her clothes off and attempted to put a crab apple in her mouth to silence her. But she said she bit his hand and fled half dressed to a nearby fraternity house where students called police.

“By speaking out, we can find our strength and ensure our lives are not defined by this experience. We define it,” Murphy said.

Her husband, Gov. Phil Murphy also spoke at the event. He won praise this week from women’s groups for signing an executive order mandating equal pay for male and female state workers.

He shared a message to President Trump with Saturday’s anti Trump crowd, saying “I would just say one one thing to the president we are not going anywhere. We ain’t going away.”
