When I took part in the Women’s March in January, I marched because I believe that women’s rights are human rights, and I was proud to do so. But I am not proud of what I’m seeing now: attempts to highjack the Women’s March in support of a very different kind of politics.

I did not march to show support for hateful, divisive language that tries to expel Zionists from the women’s movement by defining feminism as available only to those who deny Israel the right to exist.
