THUNDER BAY – January 19th saw women across North America and around the world on the march. The marchers walked in solidarity for equality, respect and to empower future generations
From coast to coast women rallied and marched to raise awareness of women’s issues. Cold weather in Canada and the northern United States didn’t deter women from the cause. In Saskatoon with a blistering wind chill of -36c dozens of women gathered.
In Winnipeg, despite the cold, the Walk was a success.
Thank you to the speakers and organizers and to everyone who attended the Winnipeg Women’s March 2019. It was -27C and -40 with the wind chill! #womensmarch #mbpoli pic.twitter.com/gdzUgCO39c

In Saskatoon hundreds came out. The Mayor participated.
-36 wind chill didn’t stop the Saskatoon women’s march to end gender based violence this morning. This work is as important as ever, thank you to the organizers and all of those who came out to support! #yxe #WomensMarch @womensmarchSask pic.twitter.com/70JUMmQ9sj

In Montana, the Walk was Hosted by Local Indigenous Organizers
No Missoula #womensmarch today. Instead Native organizers put together a vigil for missing and murdered indigenous women and girls. #MMIW #nativeled pic.twitter.com/73lHTib1z7
