Nearly a thousand people turned out for the Iowa City Women’s March in solidarity with other marches happening around the country and around the globe. Organizer Corey Hickner-Johnson led the group in a moment of silence before starting the march from the University of Iowa’s English-Philosophy Building to the steps of the Old Capitol.
The crowd was full of signs, “pussy hats” and chants like “Women’s rights are human rights.” Once at the Old Capitol building, several speakers took to the megaphone including Iowa State Rep. Mary Mascher (D-Iowa City), West High School Senior Jade Merriwether, Hickner-Johnson and other attendees.
Strengthen • Grow • Evolve is a collaborative campaign led by two Iowa City-based arts nonprofits, The Englert Theatre and FilmScene that seeks a major reinvestment to strengthen the arts through modern and historic venues, innovative programming, and new models of collaboration.
