I ask this question in total sincerity.

I understand the pain of what is behind your post — it is decades in the making, and belonged to others well before your arrival. What do you hope your post will achieve? Unity? Dialogue? I showed up Saturday to stand with all the women (and men) who came — regardless of where they fell on the spectrum of activism. Millions marched around the world. Some marched for the same reasons as you marched. Others marched for a fraction of the reasons that brought you there, and mostly for reasons that mattered to them. Some marched for the first time, and are just beginning to learn what matters to women outside their circles. What incredible potential that offers for dialogue, collaboration, understanding…change. I stood and will continue to stand with all of them, including you.
