The night before the Women’s March on Washington Jan. 21, I sat with my mother and sister in our living room making picket signs for the occasion. My mom – the better artist – was putting the finishing touches on the globe she had drawn on my poster, which declared my reason for marching: Because I’m scared for our planet!
The day after President Trump’s Jan. 20 inauguration, hundreds of thousands of men and women marched in Washington, D.C. and around the world in protest of the new president’s treatment of women and minorities. Reports say the march brought three times the amount of people to the Nation’s Capitol than the inauguration ceremony did. 14th Street writer Brianna Baker traveled to Washington and documented the historic march.

A museum famous for skull collections and jarred fetuses seems like an unlikely location for a literary panel to occur. It was my love for literature, feminism, and grotesque medical oddities that drew me to the Yellow Wallpaper Symposium at the Mutter Museum on April 14th.
