Thousands take to streets in Women's March Kern County
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
The second annual Women's March Kern County took place Saturday, as thousands took to the streets to spread a message of change.
It comes a year after President Donald Trump's inauguration. Since then, women's rights and the #MeToo movement has started a conversation.
"We have to think well of ourselves, we have to redefine ourselves and write our own stories of being smart, capable, powerful women that we are," said Dr. Evelyn Young Spath, survivor of sexual assault and relationship abuse.
People of all ages, genders and walks of life marched side by side, holding signs.
The event focused on getting people to the polls and urging people to use their voting power to elect officials that will represent their ideals.
