The Women's March: Reigniting Resistance
RadioEd is a biweekly podcast created by the DU Newsroom that taps into the University of Denver’s deep pool of bright brains to explore new takes on today’s top stories.
Four years after the first Women’s March drew the largest protest crowd in U.S. history, women are still turning to civil resistance to protect their rights. But the protest has drawn its fair share of criticism too, with many asking, “What’s the point?” Marie Berry, a self-described scholar-activist studying movements around the globe, shares her take on the march’s successes, its place among a broader push for women’s rights and what it means from a global perspective.
Berry is an assistant professor in the Josef Korbel School of International Studies and the director of the Sié Chéou-Kang Center for International Security & Diplomacy’s Inclusive Global Leadership Initiative.
