1. This will be performed in front of the White House next Saturday

On Jan. 18, protesters will gather at Freedom Plaza in downtown Washington to walk a well-worn path to the White House.

Unlike previous Women’s March events, this year’s protest will not feature the pomp of boldfaced names addressing the crowd and musical guests performing on a stage.

In fact, there won’t be a stage at all.

Instead, the group’s 16 board members will march alongside protesters carrying signs and banners. Once at the White House, a group of Chilean activists will lead participants in a song — “Un violador en tu camino” (“A Rapist in Your Path”) — popularized by feminist protest movements worldwide and meant to denounce gender-based violence.
