Yasmeen Elagha holds Palestinian flags as she cheers on the Women's March on Chicago. "I know this is a women's march, and as a woman, I want to fight for those rights, but I also want to bring awareness of the Middle Eastern struggle, of the Palestinian struggle, of the Muslim struggle, especially as a veiled woman. My representation here is to let people know that I stand with them, so I would like them to stand with me," Yasmeen Elagha said.
