Seattle Women's Marchers On How To Burst Political Bubbles And Bridge Cultural Divides

Jan 23, 2017

The Seattle women’s march on Saturday was a massive outpouring of frustration — and show strength for the forces opposing President Donald Trump. 

But some marchers acknowledged it did very little to bridge the deepening political and cultural divide in America — nor was it really intended to. 

“This particular march is about healing ourselves as women," said one participant, Evelyn Dickinson.

Once the Womxn's March on Seattle was over, economic and social chasms remained between liberal cities like Seattle and places like Grays Harbor County, where Trump won a majority of votes on Election Day.

Some of the marchers told knkx reporters Will James and Warren Langford about how they hoped to reach people who weren't at the demonstration and don’t share their worldview.

"We live in a bubble here," said marcher Kimberly Buchanan. "An economic bubble."
