The March for Women’s Lives drew the largest crowd the women’s movement has ever seen. Organizers said 1.15 million people -- from across the United States and 57 countries -- packed Washington DC’s National Mall. The diverse group, including Catholics for Choice and Republicans for Choice, came together in solidarity to challenge the Bush administration’s assault on women’s rights.

How did the media cover the event?
Did organizers accomplish their goal of reaching out to women of color?

Panelists include:
