Eva James may well have needed the march in Washington to prove that her mother Carmen Kirschling was right.
“I always believed women were the strength of a nation,” Kirschling said. “That’s how I was raised, and how I tried to raise my daughter.”
James, 34, said she was devastated when she learned that Donald Trump was elected U.S. president.
“I started hearing what Donald Trump was saying about women and then I heard that other people were starting to accept what he said as the truth,” James said. “I didn’t want that for women, especially the younger girls who don’t know who they are just yet.”
