Women March in Hayward as Part of Nationwide March

Monday, January 22, 2018 | by Joe Morey |

Approximately 70 women (and a few men) marched up Main Street in Hayward on Saturday, Jan. 20, to protest President Trump and his administration's policies, one year after his inauguration and the first Women's March on Jan. 21, 2017, when more than a million women gathered in protest of his election.

The marchers met at the Hayward Municipal Lot at 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning and then stood on the corner of U.S. Hwy 63 and State Road 27 for several minutes before proceeding to march along Hwy 63 to Main, then up Main Street to the Sawyer County Courthouse and then back to the Municipal Lot, where several women spoke, including Wi. State Rep. Beth Meyers, an Ashland democrat.

Some of the Hayward marchers came from as far away as Ashland and Spooner. 

The main message of Saturday's march appeared to be a rally cry for women to organize and help democrats win races in the upcoming midterm elections in November. Some of the signs they carried read, "Power to the Polls," and "Register to Vote, your Welfare depends on it," and "The future is female."

The youngest marcher, Chloe Bristor, of Hayward.
