Op, sure the people of America voted him into the office, many of which counted on him to bring jobs back to some long-time marginalized communities. I get that. Among many issues that need to be addressed, putting food to the table and economy is probably the determine factor that decided whom to vote for many voters. But let's not forget that Trump didn't win the popular vote anyways. Regardless, his presidency empowers sexism, bigotry and many many socially backwards ideologies. And the whole argument of "he had female exec in his company so he's not a sexist" is like saying Silicon Valley is diverse because they had a handful of female coders.

You need some serious help, OP. When we compare ourselves, we should compare ourselves to the best country in each category. Presenting the "Middle East" as a strawman for saying how great our country is... That's not what America is about.

You've been provided an excellent example of the best in Scandinavia. You don't have to like their economic system when you benchmark on women's rights and standing in society.

Consider this: if you have two children, one boy and one girl, and they work equally hard, why should one have better prospects than the other? A: They shouldn't. And as a man and future father, it's my job to make sure that my daughter has the same opportunities as my son. That's it. That's the end.

It's about being progressive not retroactive. Just because US women have more freedom than other parts of the world, it doesn't mean we should just chill and call it a day. The fact that a sexist is being elected to the highest office of this country may well throw backwards many social progress men and women of this country have made in the past few decades.

"It could be worse" is a useless argument. Because it's always true, everything is relative.

Actually it's Scandinavian countries that do. Most of parliament are gender balanced (not the case in the US), they have elected female presidents and prime ministers (in which the US has no successfully done) & mostly, women are seen and thought of as equals, men don't have to learn or pretend they are, they were just raised in that mindset. Maybe you need to look beyond your own biases and not think that every time we're "better" or have "more freedom" you're not just comparing it to the Middle East as your starting base. Prove you wrong? I just did, I'm a female, and I don't need to apologize for proving it to you.

To answer your question OP, to me this protest is about showing not only trump but also the GOP that any move towards regressive policies will be met with resistance. It's about showing force in numbers and in as public a way as possible that people won't take any potential discriminatory social policies lying down

@op a commenter JUST pointed out that the protest is not about equal rights and that Scandinavian countries, not the US, are the most liberal. If you're looking for an echo chamber of your own opinions, go elsewhere.

OP - let's do a test. So if I get pregnant or worst off raped, and it's illegal for me to get an abortion because "females have more equality than any other country" and have to raise this child. Shouldn't I be able to sue and get half of the fathers money? Doesn't work like that right? Also, banning us from our reproductive rights, what about if we all sign a petition and make it law that men need to sign a contract before they not wear a condom or better yet, you either have to take a pill or take a shot so you don't impregnate anyone on accident and if you do, half your income goes to the child regardless of being with the mother or not. Lord please OP doesn't have any children, or especially daughters who hope it never happens to them, but if it does, too scared to tell there dad

D1 - what do you mean "doesn't mean the big bad white man was keeping them from getting there". White men were the ONLY ones doing consulting and it stayed that way up until 10 - 15 years ago. I don't think females just randomly thought, "hey maybe I should do consulting because I'm smart, hard working, and capable, there shouldn't be any reason why I wouldn't get hired" you kidding me. We literally had to fight to be in the same table as you, not just women, but of color as well.

To D1, have you followed why women are marching? Women never said that they do not have rights... women are marching in part because of the threat to some of their rights, like the type of healthcare that they have access to, or that their commander in chief approves sexual assault, or that they may be employed like you but make 30 cent less to every one of ur dollars. So it's about equal rights, not just rights.
