One day after International Women’s Day, thousands gathered at Dam Square to attend the official Women’s March of 2019. The march began at 12:30 pm and ended roughly around 3 pm at Museumplein, where several speakers had been invited to share their stories. The organizers, Women’s March NL, emphasized on the Facebook event that “2019 is not just about women.”
