The world fundamentally changed on the day of the Women’s March in 2017. Millions of women laced up their sneakers, put on their pink hats, and took to the streets to make their voices heard.
But even after all that, I never imagined what would happen a few weeks later, on February 7. That was the day Mitch McConnell tried to silence me – and silence Coretta Scott King – on the floor of the US Senate.
Donald Trump may call us names. Mitch McConnell might tell us to sit down and shut up. But we will never give up. We are an army – an army filled with optimism and hope and fierce determination. And up against our army, they don’t stand a chance.
We will resist. We will persist. And We. Will. Win.
