Had I been in the United States, I would have made a (clever) sign, put on my walking shoes, grabbed my daughter and husband, and joined the millions of women, men, and children who spoke up for–and on behalf of–women, families, and children. 

I have great pride that my friends, be they from college, law-school, or beyond, joined the conversation by marching in Los Angeles, New York, Boston, and Washington, D.C.  To them, I say thank you.  Thank you for letting the world know that we are disgusted that a man who speaks about grabbing women by the pussy is the President of the United States.  Thank you for letting the new administration know that women will continue to champion reproductive rights and affordable access to healthcare.  Thank you for setting an example for our children, be they boys or girls, that there is a time to stand-up and speak-out for what is right.

Indeed, if there were ever a time to stand up and speak out, it is now.
