The Women’s March of Jan. 21, 2017 was among the largest demonstrations of peaceful protest that has ever occurred, with as many as 5 million participants. The march captured the imaginations of people in 80 countries.
Images of the march dominated the news cycle and social media. Relaxing on a few days’ vacation after a conference, a few of us were talking about the women’s march. We wanted to know what impact the march had on the individuals who participated, or were simply interested observers. Why not launch a flash study to learn more? So we did.
