Huge diversity of goals but central issue of women’s well being and rights was appropriately dominate. Self-disclosing speeches by Natalie Portman, Scarlet Johansson and Viola Davis were especially insightful and poignant. Try to find and watch on internet. Edina Menzel singing Defying Gravity was moving. It was hard for me to grasp all the ways women and girls are oppressed and abused – not all the time, of course, but way too often.

The scope and prevalence of demeaning sexism, harassment and outright sexual assaults is so much greater than I realized – and so much more offensive. Males are the source of the problem and critical to its solution. We need to care more and do more.

Also found the train a great way to travel.
