But why is this an issue now?
Kimberly Schiller Martin

Are these serious questions? Really? Well, for a start, Obama never went around boasting he could grab women by the pussy. However imperfect the state of gender relations during his presidency, he could never be accused of being a boorish, misogynistic pig. Hillary’s ascension to the White House might have been interpreted as a cause for celebration by women, a step forward rather than backwards. Why march now? Easy. The women’s march is an entirely sane reaction to present circumstances, and the very real threat posed by Trump and his cronies to hard won advances made by women over many years.
