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.

As college age students, we are approaching our first Presidential election as voting-aged adults. As a political and historical geek, I have been counting down to this 2016 election since I was in grade school. I patiently awaited my time to actively participate in the political process as excitedly as a normal little girl might await her wedding day. A lot has changed since my distant observations of elections as a patriotic child. For one, to say that my political opinions have drifted from those of my family would be an understatement.
