I made my way to the Women's March on Washington last Saturday filled with a mix of excitement and trepidation. I had gone back and forth about whether I should go, torn between a deep-seated conviction that there are matters of basic human rights, dignity and justice that need to be defended, and an internal disquietude about a broad protest platform that included certain positions I didn't agree with.
Catholic sisters who joined some 3 million people in Women's Marches Jan. 21 are heartened by the turnout, the international scope of the demonstrations, their peaceful nature, and the energy they engendered. But the question of "What's next?" is a serious one.
Catholic women made sure their voices were heard among the millions who gathered at marches and rallies in cities and towns across the United States and around the world on January 21 to stand up for women's rights and send a signal to President Donald Trump about a wide range of issues.
