Bora High School senior Nora Herron (left) and Capitol High School junior Colette Raptosh (right) are the organizers of the Women's March on Idaho set for Saturday, January 21.

Demonstrations are expected both in Washington, D.C. and across the country as Donald Trump assumes the presidency. One of the biggest will be the Women's March on Washington set for Saturday. The movement has generated so-called sister marches across the nation, including here in the Gem State.

Rather than being organized by a political group, the Women's March on Idaho is being led by a pair of high school students. Nora Herron and Colette Raptosh sat down with our Matt Guilhem to discuss the mission of the demonstration and why they took it upon themselves to organize the march.
