The annual Women's March is this Saturday at the Phoenix Capitol.

Now in its third year, the movement has been staying strong. However, accusations about the movement’s lack of inclusivity has reached a head. This year, the national movement has faced allegations of being anti-Semitic and overwhelmingly white.

The Show spoke with Mako Ward, an instructor in ASU’s Women and Gender studies program, and Imelda Ojeda, one of the organizers of the Phoenix Women’s March, to discuss the disunity and criticisms the three-year-old movement is facing.
