Week of January 24: The Women’s March and the Dreamers

While New York City’s and Washington, D.C.’s marches were noticeably smaller this year, organizers said crowd estimates in Chicago were 300,000, up from last year’s march, which had about 250,000 people.

This week on The Byline: After a groundbreaking year for women speaking out against sexual harassment by media executives and Hollywood actors, the #metoo movement, the women’s march in Chicago returned bigger than before. An estimated 300,000 people turned out to show their support for women’s empowerment. 

Also on this episode: after the federal government shut down on Friday over the battle about Dreamers, people brought to the U.S. illegally as children, the federal government is now open for business. But what happens to them now?
