Oct. 27 marked the first of three days of the sold-out Women’s Convention which brought together over 4,000 women from all over the United States to reignite their passion for the fight for women’s rights.

This was the organization’s first major event since the historical Women’s March in January.

The first day consisted of over 40 workshops on topics ranging from grassroots advocacy, changing the face of the $20 bill and gender justice to local organizing and the fight for clean water in Flint and Puerto Rico.

Panelists and speakers included movement leaders, politicians and forerunners in the entertainment industry, “that reflect our nation’s changing demographics,” according to the convention’s website.
