One word puts Cincinnati Women's March, Black Lives Matter at odds

Two groups that otherwise would appear to be allies will hold separate events on the one-year anniversary of President Donald Trump's inauguration.

Organizers of the 2018 Cincinnati Women's March and a group of prominent local African-American activists are fighting over a word.

At issue is the use of the word "vote" in the subtitle of women's march scheduled for noon Jan. 20 at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.

Black Lives Matter: Cincinnati, a group that considers women's liberation essential to black liberation, will not participate. It will hold an educational forum at 3 p.m. that day.

It objects to the slogan "Hear our vote!" and asked leaders of march organizer United We Stand Cincinnati to change it to "Hear our voice!"

2. How about "Vote our Voice"?

Do I have to solve EVERYTHING?

3. Isn't "Hear our vote" the tagline for the Womens Marches nationwide?
