WATCH: Women's equality marches

What’s set to take place after the Presidential inauguration this week is nothing less than “a global movement.” That’s according to one of the leaders of the Women’s March on Washington. There are nearly 400 women’s marches planned throughout the US and on six continents on January 21st, all inspired by the women-led DC march. The idea is to bring together women and men of all ages, races and backgrounds to be proactive about women’s rights and social justice under a trump presidency. More than twenty of the “Sister Marches” as they’re being called are taking place in upstate New York.

Need to Know’s Hélène Biandudi Hofer spoke with Brighton High School freshman Gemma Sobieraj recently about why attending the local People’s Solidarity Rally non-negotiable.

Community members joining the various marches around the country join Biandudi Hofer in the WXXI-TV studios to explain the purpose of this mass mobilization and if these marches can in fact bring change to our nation.
