Big crowd floods downtown Geneva for women's march; Lauren Underwood among those to applaud change

An estimated 500-plus people attended the event, which featured U.S. Reps. Lauren Underwood, D-Naperville; Sean Casten, D-Downers Grove, and Raja Krishnamoorthi, D-Schaumburg, among its speakers. 

Beck said women from all over the area, including Naperville, Elgin and Chicago, were traveling to Geneva to participate in the event. Metra added three commuter train cars on the Union Pacific-West line to accommodate Saturday's march, she said.

The weather affected attendance, Beck said, but she appreciated that safety must be a priority. "We are with those in thoughts and spirit who could not come," she said.

People gathered at the Old Kane County Courthouse at 100 S. Third St. for a pre-march rally before stepping off at South Third and James streets and heading south to the Geneva Metra train station. The village closed the street to traffic to accommodate the crowd.
