Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – On Saturday, women and their allies across the nation will gather and demand respect for their rights.

The Dayton Women’s March will include a performance by World House Choir and appearances from County Commissioners Debbie Lieberman and Judy Dodge. Organizers say those in attendance will hear from advocates for various social issues such as immigration, climate change and women’s reproductive rights.

This year’s Women’s March comes four years after the inaugural march in 2017. It took place the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, making history as the largest single-day protest in U.S. history.

“It was overwhelming. It still gives me chills til this day it was powerful. There were so many women from every age group and nationality. It was just the most intense and insane thing that I’ve been apart of,” said Liz Stutzman, Founder of Dayton Women’s Resistance.

Organizer of the march, Joy Schwab said as long as women continue to raise their voices they’ll continue to make history.

“That happened in 2018 when so many women won office and changed the course of the house of representatives that has resulted in great legislation for women and for the country as well as finally the impeachment of Donald Trump,” Schwab said.

The Women’s March in Dayton is Saturday, January 18, from 1:00-2:00 at Montgomery County’s Courthouse Square.
