BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Hundreds of women hit the streets of Buffalo demanding change. Change they believe should have happened a long time ago.

It was all a part of the third annual Women’s March. Women and men were fighting for causes like better women's healthcare, income equality or reproductive rights.

Tiffany Lewis wanted to make sure her granddaughter gets a chance to see strong women banding together for issues that matter them.

“It's so important, especially like on a day like today. Where we have so many youth and so many women out here fighting for our rights,” said Lewis.

Buffalo's Women’s March included 70 different groups from around Western New York. They rallied on the steps of City Hall and then marched around a windy downtown.
