Many Oregonians traveled to D.C. to participate in Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington.
Sabrina Parsons is CEO of Palo Alto Software in Eugene. She says she’s marching because it’s an important part of the Democratic process.
Parsons: “To get out here and be heard and be with other people who want to make sure the world knows we are concerned about our future and women’s rights.”
Parsons says the streets in D.C. are packed.
Parsons: “It’s all kinds of people. Obviously a lot of women, but not just women, so many men—kids, boys, girls. People of all race, color, and background. It is really amazing to see it really looks like America, it’s just everybody.”
Parsons says she hasn’t seen any counter-protesters.
There were more than 600 sister marches around the world Saturday, including in Oregon cities like Eugene, Newport, Bend, and Florence.
