Red-State Resistance Diary: International Women's Day Edition


Pins, pussyhats, rallies and town halls are all nationwide signs of the resistance. Where Trump support is high, the opposition will fight. To celebrate International Women's Day this Wednesday, millions went on strike while all were encouraged to wear red for solidarity. 

If you live in a state Trump won and have a photograph of a protest, meeting or other expression of activism, hashtag your photos and videos #RedStateResistance, and you may see them here on AlterNet.
