Phoebe Cleghorn | Posted 23.01.2017 | UK
Phoebe Cleghorn

The motivations of the Women's Marches were not as simple as they may have looked on paper. Some marched for reproductive rights, some in response to Islamophobia. Women marched so that their voices may be heard, though each voice said something different. This said, it's important to remember that these differences need not separate us. Positive movements such as feminism should, ideally, display no barriers between race, background, belief or sexuality, but rather solidarity amongst the diversities that define us.

Catriona Luke

The issue, after 60 years, might be whether this is once again in response to the shifting geo-political alliances of the region, or whether Obama has his head screwed on the right way and might actually move US policy in favour of peace between India and Pakistan. That would be a first.
