KUMD Women's Music Show host travels to DC: "everyone just wanted to show up and be counted"

Ellen Vaagen

When the Feminist Action Collective in Duluth announced they were raising money to send a handful of women to Washington DC for the Women's March on Washington, Ellen Vaagen knew she had to go.

The essay she wrote to make her case clinched it and the KUMD Women's Music Show volunteer boarded a bus last Friday and headed east.

Before, during and after the trip, Vaagen talked to fellow bus riders and total strangers to gather their thoughts and feelings, and she shared some of her discoveries with us this morning.
