In Photos: Toronto Women’s March 2018

Thousands of women and allies marked the anniversary of the Women's March on Washington at a local protest on January 20


Thousands of women and allies descended onto Nathan Phillip’s Square for the Toronto Women’s March on January 20. Marking the anniversary for the Women’s March on Washington  – a global protest where millions of women rallied against the Trump presidency, sexual assault and a range of other feminist issues – this year’s event had a more localized agenda.

Speakers including Dawn Maracle, Zanana Akande and Toronto city councilor Kristyn Wong-Tam addressed the crowd on ways to make Toronto a more inclusive city and brought attention to issues ahead of this year’s provincial and municipal elections. March organizers also wanted to take advantage of the momentum built from last year’s march as well as other protests, including the #MeToo movement.

Here are some photos from the Women’s March below.
