At 6 P.M. on Saturday evening, six hours after the New York version of the Women’s March on Washington began, thousands of protesters were still streaming west along Forty-second Street, and then turning up Fifth Avenue to Trump Tower. The pace was slow, but the mood of many people in the crowd was upbeat, giddy almost. Most were women and girls, but there were plenty of men and boys, too. They chanted “Hey! Hey! Ho! Ho! Donald Trump has got to go.” They cheered, and they carried homemade signs that said things like “HATE WON,” “NASTY WOMEN AGAINST FASCISM,” “#STOPTWEETING,” READ A DAMN BOOK,” and, my personal favorite, “WE SHALL OVERCOMB.”
