"We're tough and we are going to march through," said Leah Beck, co-organizer of the Fox Valley Women’s March. "We are going to stand up for our rights and not let the weather slow us down.”
 
Orchestrated by We Can Lead Change Fox Valley and Kane County Coalition, the march was one of hundreds being held around the country to send a message of self-determination and unity.
