BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Several hundred people rallied in front of the Idaho Capitol for the state’s Womxn’s March.
The Idaho Statesman reports the event Saturday was aligned with a national event, the Women’s March, occurring in Washington, D.C.
Idaho organizers say the name was changed to “Womxn” to be more inclusive to those who might not identify as a woman in the binary sense.
The first Women’s March took place on Jan. 21, 2017, in response to the election of Donald Trump.
