Women Will March In Sag Harbor On Saturday

Last year's Women's March in Sag Harbor. COURTESY HOPE MARXE
Jan 16, 2018 10:36 AM

Women will march for equal rights, immigration reform and other causes in Sag Harbor on Saturday.

Held in conjunction with similar marches in Washington, D.C., New York City and elsewhere over the weekend, the East End Women's March will start at 11 a.m. at Long Wharf and proceed down Sag Harbor's Main Street.

"I think we'll have a lot of different things to cover at the march," said Hope Marxe, a Sag Harbor resident who helped organize this year's local event.

Ms. Marxe took the lead in getting the march together, and applied more than a week ago for a permit with Sag Harbor Village. Last year's march, which Ms. Marxe said was put together in only two days, drew more than 300 people.

"A lot of us from the march last year stayed in touch and joined Facebook groups," Ms. Marxe said. "When I was applying for the permit, a lot of people were asking if there was going to be another march. I think it's very powerful and amazing to see."

They should march to Matt Lauer's (D) estate. Harvey Weinstein(D) hasn't closed yet and he'll likely be there.

Shouldn't it just be a march for equal rights? Calling it a women's march (excluding or making males feel not welcome) for equality seems a little off...

Female Democrats march in support standard leftist causes - pro-illegal alien, black lives matter, etc. Supportive liberal media attempts to paint this small group as representing a majority of women.

Yeah, that's right out of the left's playbook.

Yeah, all that leftist stuff really sucks. We dont need civil rights, or pay gap equality. These women are just horrible for their concerns with the current administration.

If they all carried automatic weapons and wore NRA hats would that make you knuckle dragging Trump zombies happy?

I would be happy if they marched in a country where women are actually oppressed.
