GREAT FALLS, Mont.— More than 100 men, women, and children raised their voices today at the Great Falls Women’s March.

People gathered at Gibson Park for songs, speeches, and community.

Speakers addressed a variety of issues, including Medicaid expansion, equal pay, reproductive rights, and missing and murdered indigenous women.

Organizers say this was not a registered march with others happening around the country, but they felt it was still important to demonstrate on a local level.

Those that came out were encouraged to stay politically active and to engage others, and despite the name, organizers say this was a march for all Montanans— to encourage diversity and equality.
