Womxn’s March 2019 Denver, Colorado // Frances Meng- Frecker
By: Frances Meng-Frecker, Head Photographer
For the third year in a row, The Womxn’s March happened in Downtown Denver on Saturday January 19. The theme was “Listen. Unite. Act.” This theme was used to encourage people to listen to those who have been silenced, unite under the banner of anti-oppression, and act with intention. It is noticeable that the creators of this event spelled women with an “x.” Here is why, as the website states, “The Womxn’s March Denver is launching today with the “x” in our name, because we believe in equity and we act with purpose to make space for trans, non-binary, and genderqueer persons in our name.” Their mission statement continues to describe their path towards intersectionality and give purpose and drive to the change that needs to happen in the world.
