On January 21, 2017, The Women's March on Washington became one of the biggest global movements in American History. Over 1.2 million people attended in streets of Washington D.C. and over 5 million people marched in over 300 sister marches in cities across the globe.

Kisha had a unique and exclusive access to the courageous women that organized the movement from meetings at their New York headquarters to the final days organizing from hotel rooms in Washington D.C.

A portion of this piece was published exclusively in The Washington Post on International Women's Day, March 8, 2017. 
An extended multi media exhibition entitled 'ReSisters : Behind The Scenes of The Women's March' was a featured exhibition at Photoville 2017.
