On Saturday, January 21, it is estimated that approximately 3 to 4 million Americans stood together in protest of president Donald Trump’s agenda at the Woman’s March. Rosanne Cash, a long-time advocate of women’s rights, stood with these women and their families in New York City to join in the peaceful, powerful gathering. To no one’s surprise, Rosanne Cash will not stand idly by when her rights are threatened.
Signs in hand, she and her family took to the streets of NYC to stand with others who share their passion for social justice. Play-by-plays of her experience were popping up live on her Twitter account.
Sign my son made for #womensmarchnyc tomorrow. I had no input into his choice of slogan. Feel pretty good about his generation now. pic.twitter.com/82TJxkt0gs

Though she was presented with a bit of backlash for her opinions and actions, Cash, standing up for what she believes in, handled it with ease and poise.
@rosannecash Your Daddy would not be proud of you. Surely you did not gather with that group of trashy women!!
