The march is also celebrating the “unprecedented number of women elected to public office throughout the U.S. during the 2018 mid-term elections.”

Organizers say the theme for this year’s event is “Listen.Unite.Act.”

“We first LISTEN to voices that are and have been marginalized; we UNITE by marching; we ACT by engaging with those nonprofits/organizations that focus on womxn and girls and who are doing the work to uplift the voices of marginalized populations,” organizers said in a news release.

Many may ask why the group swapped out the “e” in women for an “x.” Organizers say they chose that to “make space for trans, non-binary, and genderqueer persons in the name.”
