Students, citizens brave single digits to march for women

“Hey hey, ho ho, gender bias has got to go!” chanted a crowd of more than 100 protestors at the January 20 Lansing Women’s March. The protestors met at the MSU Union on January 20 and braved single-digit temperatures. Flanked by Michigan State University Police, the protestors marched from the Union to the Hannah Administration Building. Demonstrators were marching in support of many causes, among them women’s reproductive rights, workplace equality and equal pay, advocacy for victims of sexual assault and LGBTQ+ rights. They were also marching to protest President Donald Trump’s policies on immigration and the proposed border wall.
