Several hundred attend ‘A Day Without a Woman’ protest at State Capitol

DENVER -- Several hundred people marked International Women's Day on Wednesday with "A Day Without a Woman" protest at the State Captiol.

Organizers called it a one-day demonstration of solidarity to show the importance of women to the economy.

The rally was organized by some of the same people who put together the giant demonstration the day after President Donald Trump was sworn into office.

Thousands of women marched through the streets of Denver and around the country on Jan. 21 to protest Trump's election.

This time, it's not directly about Trump, but the message is very similar.

“We can show with our physical presence, we can show our government at all levels to know we are here and we are watching what they are doing," activist Helen Shreves said.

“What's important is we are out there and we are visible and will remain visible just as other groups have in the past."
