Young activists and leaders are taking center stage at this year’s women’s march in Idaho. Unlike in previous years, the Jan. 23 event will be virtual due to COVID-19.

Since the women’s march started in 2017, there have been events all across the country — many organized by teenagers and young adults. 2021 event organizers Petra Hoffman, Fatuma Mnongerwa and Kaya Evans join Idaho Matters to tell us about this year's event, and what it means for them.
