Montrealers march for women’s rights despite the Arctic cold

Published: January 21, 2019

Dozens of people joined a rally inside Place Émilie-Gamelin in downtown Montreal for women’s rights.

The event was one of dozens of marches that  were held across Canada and around the world as part of Women’s March.

The turnout in Montreal this year was small given the Arctic deep freeze, which saw the local mid-day temperature hover around minus-22C, and a windchill of minus-35.

The original Women’s March in Washington in 2017 was held the day after the United States President Donald Trump’s inauguration, drawing hundreds of thousands of people.
