Norfolk, VA, held her Women's March on Sunday January 21. We had much kinder and gentler weather than last year! The policemen in attendance were happy and supportive, and received many words of appreciation. One estimated the crowd at approximately 1500.

Lots of moms brought their young'uns and there was a good turnout of canine support, all carrying signs. There were lots of young people. (Note: without parental approval, this photographer only includes the images of the signs of these young teens.)

Marchers met on the Nauticus Museum grounds, heard speeches and music, then marched up Granby Street, doing a u-turn back to the museum grounds, where there were more activities, and no one seemed to want to leave!

Two local eateries on the route, Urban Ice and Bonchon, offered marchers drinks and use of bathrooms.

It was a hopeful day!

Of course there were the usual holier-than-thou protesters, who were either ignored or drowned out by chanting.
