Don't just march, run to the 2018 Women's March...

What a difference a year makes, right? If you thought the divisive presidential election campaigning of 2016 was bad, then 2017 solidified what an assault on democracy, decency and equality this new administration is.

After the election result the first Women's March last January 21, 2017, being surrounded by 750,000 like-minded people in Downtown L.A. (and all over the world) was a very cathartic experience, a chance to vent anger, frustrations and resolve to resist and fight inequality, racism, misogyny, homophobia and election tampering by foreign governments.

This year I'll return to the streets to peacefully voice my right to free speech and continue to keep the movement for positive change going. This year the march is not just about outrage, but it's also about taking steps to make change happen. Encouraging more women of all ages, ethnicity and sexual orientation wherever they're from to run for office and supporting their efforts to help balance out the inequalities in the decision making process in America.

I may not be a woman, but I believe women have the fundamental right to decide what they do with their bodies, not men, the government or religious extremists.

I believe in equal pay and an equal say in how this country, companies and Hollywood is run. And let's face it, they'll probably do a better job than what all the corrupt men that have been abusing their patriarchal power for far too long.

Anyway, yesterday I spent to day preparing to march, creating a few new timely signs and recycling and revamping some previous ones that are still eerily relevant twelve months on.

Time's up for disgusting political figures who want to tax the poor, remove our healthcare, silence our voices, take away the rights we've fought for, tarnish the reputation of the U.S. around the globe and put a nuclear target on our backs.

Don't just march, run for office ladies...
