Rusciano and her co-host Harley Breen, who have replaced Rove McManus and Sam Frost, spoke to Tracey Spicer about her experience emceeing the event.
When Rusciano asked Spicer whether she felt nervous about the gig, Spicer admitted she was “terrified”, as many of the second wave feminists who had marched in Hyde Park during the 1960s, joined the younger generations who were marching on Saturday.
“We were standing on the shoulders of giants,” Spicer said.
“We were really standing on the shoulders of the suffragettes who got us the vote at the turn of the last century,” she added.
Spicer spoke about the reasons women, men and children marched on Saturday, and why we care so much about what's happening in America right now.
"A lot of these policies are anti-women and anti-minority, so even though we've got abortion rights in most states we can see those being rolled back, we can see equal opportunity policies being rolled back here. So it frightens a lot of us, the effect of what's happening in America will happen in Australia."
