The group wanted to bring people together to educate and inspire one another about the women's movement both here in Louisville and nationwide.

Thousands of mostly young women in masks rallied in the nation’s capital and other U.S. cities, exhorting voters to oppose President Donald Trump and his fellow Republican candidates in the Nov. 3 elections.
