Glamour has kicked off celebrations for their 2017 “Women of the Year” summit in November with covers featuring the famous and influential women who will be awarded—that includes the organizers of the Women’s March, and they look just great.
The accompanying article, written by Jezebel founder Anna Holmes, goes into the history of the March, and celebrates the work of Tamika D. Mallory, Bob Bland, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez, as well as that of the millions of women who demonstrated. The March itself has also grown, becoming much more than a day of protest, inspiring this past weekend’s Women’s Convention in Detroit.
Central to the Women’s March story in Glamour is rage: at Trump, at injustice, and also at the shaky footing the March initially got off too:
The anger undergirding the creation of the growing coalition was not without endemic complications. Women of color noted that some white women who were quick to don pink hats had been absent from demonstrations like Black Lives Matter rallies, which centered on the ways in which black and brown bodies are often first on the line. “You don’t just get to join because now you’re scared too,” the activist ShiShi Rose posted on the Women’s March Facebook page. “I was born scared.”
And now the story has transformed into these public faces of women leadership, on both magazines and in the street. Glamour seems to have high hopes for what they’ll do next.
