Flights are packed with nasty women ready to march on Washington

As my friend and I waited for our bus to Washington, D.C. this morning, we couldn’t help but notice that nearly everyone standing in line with us was a woman. Because we are New Yorkers and don’t ever want to appear too pumped for anything (it’s related to all that black we wear), we quietly acknowledged each other and made our way to what might be one of the largest human rights protests in American history, Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington.

Others, in other modes of transportation, however, felt there was no need for chill. They wore they pink pussy hats loud and proud. 

They raised their hands in a “yup, you better believe I’ll stand up for equal rights” solidarity. 

Even Southwest Airlines has been turning its cabins hot pink in honor of the march tomorrow and in support of equality for all. 

While I’m proud to be a too-cool New Yorker, looking at these photos of my fellow marchers, I’m a little disappointed our bus wasn’t just a tad nastier.
