Women's March organizers respond to controversy leading up to rally

Sarah Silverman Becomes the Latest Leader to Call Out the Women’s March over Anti-Semitic Ties

"We told them we were marching with or without their permission, and we secured a permit to march on Pennsylvania Avenue, past the Trump International Hotel".

Occupy New Hampshire Seacoast and other groups also are hosted a women's march in Portsmouth.

"While the Women's March is a movement pushing back against President Trump and his administration's words and actions towards the disenfranchised - namely women - the mission of the movement in no way excuses it from being held to an inclusive set of values", IU College Democrats' executive board said in a statement.

Julie Wash, 57, a librarian from Saratoga Springs, New York, said Women's March leader Tamika Mallory - who has faced blowback for her support of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan - is being held to a different standard than Trump and other white, male leaders.

She said she would "keep opposing Donald Trump and his policies".

Those wanting to march for women in New Hampshire had their pick of locations.

"Instead, this weekend, I will join a movement of women around the nation who are participating in local marches that have distanced themselves from those national Women's March leaders who still ally with bigotry", she said.

Additionally, Vanessa Wruble, one of the group's original organizers, said she faced anti-Semitism treatment from Women's March co-presidents Carmen Perez and Mallory.

The Democratic National Committee was removed from the Women's March sponsorship webpage earlier this week, CNN reported Tuesday.

In some cities, like NY and Washington, there will be more than one march or demonstration due to criticism that some Women's March leaders are anti-Semitic - a charge those leaders have sought to dispel in recent interviews and statements.

The newly elected women - almost all Democrats - include the first Muslim women and first Native American women in Congress, as well as the first black women to represent their states in New England.

"I have said many times that I feel everyone has a right to exist, I just don't feel anyone has a right to exist at the disposal of another group", Mallory said. Parallel marches were planned in dozens of US cities.

"I believe that all people have the right to exist", Mallory replied.

Only 10,000 people are expected to attend the march in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, according to published reports.
