International Women’s Day / Women’s Strike takes to Washington Square Park March 8, 2017.

This great photo of the International Women’s Day crowd gathered amidst the Fountain Plaza and the backdrop of the Arch was taken by Widad Hassan. Wednesday’s rally then turned into a march which included stops at the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire Memorial and Zuccotti Park.
