Official Women’s March On Colorado: One Year Anniversary January 20

We had a great turnout for the Women’s March, enjoying the companionship of tens of thousands of likeminded folks.

This is not the second women’s march in Colorado, but the third. On January 23, 1914 in Trinidad, Colorado, women marched in support of the United Mine Workers strike, and to protest the arrest of Mother Jones by the National Guard. Their march was disrupted by the Guard who rode them down on horse back. Later that year, on April 20, the Guard attacked the striking miner’s camp at Ludlow, killing 20 people. Below are some photos of the Trinidad Women’s March from the Denver Public Library’s Western History Collection.
