Washington, DC – The day after Trump’s inauguration, hundreds of thousands of people, predominantly women, are marching thought the streets of Washington DC.

According to a statement from protest organizers, “We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families - recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.”

The statement continues, “The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us - women, immigrants of all statuses, those with diverse religious faiths particularly Muslim, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native and Indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, the economically impoverished and survivors of sexual assault.”

Early reports indicate more than a million people have joined the Women’s Marches around the country.
