CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM, CLEVELAND, Ohio- Some 15, 000 people protested on Public Square in Cleveland, Ohio on Saturday, a sister march to the national women's march in Washington D.C and a local event with speakers that include Ohio Congress persons Marcia L. Fudge and Marcy Kaptur, Ohio state Rep. Nickie Antonio and Black Cleveland journalist and activist Kathy Wray Coleman of the Imperial Women Coalition, who also led the 15 thousand people on chants during a march to City Hall and back to Public Square.

Some 600 marches were held that day in cities across the country on women's issues, including the hub march in Washington, D.C. that drew over 200 thousand people to the nation's capital, a day after Donald Trump was inaugurated amid protests that brought some 200 arrests on nearby streets.

In Atlanta, some 60,000 people showed, in Chicago police turned people away because of the enormous crowd, and Los Angeles drew dome 750,00 protesters.


But, regardless of the turnout, women united across this country, and their voices were heard, loudly and clearly.

Also a former Cleveland schools biology teacher who trained for 17 years at the Call and Post Newspaper and who now edits Cleveland Urban News.Com and the Kathy Wray Coleman Online News Blog.Com, Coleman said in her rousing speech that the absence of a Black woman on President Trump's transition team and cabinet is inexcusable, that Black women are incarcerated at a rate four times that of White women, and that they traditionally earn 63 cents on the dollar compared to non-Hispanic White men.

She urged the federal government to bring in more resources to the largely Black city of Cleveland and talked on violence against women from the Imperial Avenue Murders in Cleveland by serial killer and death row inmate Anthony Sowell, to the East Cleveland serial murders by convicted serial killer Michael Madison and the Seymour Avenue rape and kidnapping of Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight and Amanda Berry.

Led through the city streets by Coleman with a  bull horn, protesters chanted 'No justice, no peace, My body my choice, Women united will never be defeated, and This is what democracy looks like," to name a few.


A Republican and former reality star turned president who won the presidency in November over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Trump is colorful at best.

The national women's march in Washington and similar rallies that were held in cities across the country came as Trump is under fire from women's rights groups and Civil Rights organizations, including the NAACP, for insensitive remarks during the presidential campaign against women, and the make-up of his transition team and cabinet, neither of which contains any Black women whatsoever.

Also at issue are comments the president made two weeks ago, saying Civil Rights icon and longtime Congressman John Lewis of Georgia had done nothing for his congressional districts.

The insensitive rhetoric caused Lewis to back-out of the inauguration and several other Washington Democrats followed his lead, some 62 Democratic lawmakers in fact, including Fudge, a Warrensville Heights Democrat, and Kaptur, a Toledo Democrat whose congressional district stretches to Cleveland.
