Controversy won’t slow the Women’s March down. In spite of accusations of anti-Semitism, bullying, and improper management, the third annual march will take Washington, DC on Saturday, January 19. A second march, born out of dissension among the national march’s organizers, will take place in New York City on the same day, along with marches in major cities across the country, like Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and more.
Since confirming that the march would, well, march on in 2019, two of the the national organization’s co-chairs have been accused of making anti-Semitic comments on more than one occasion, which were detailed in a December investigative report by Tablet. The Women’s March said it “[denounces] anti-semitism, and there should be no confusion about that,” but still several organization, including the Democratic National Committee, have withdrawn their support. Regardless, the march is taking place as planned this weekend.
