On the day after the inauguration many thousands are expected to take part in the 'Women's March on Washington". Organizers who began planning the event last November shortly after the presidential election say the objective is to bring national attention to women and other groups who feel they have been marginalized.

The Million Mom March scheduled for Mother’s Day will advocate more gun control, but it won’t speak for all women or all mothers.

A panel talks about the flaws in proposals to restrict gun ownership rights.
