The Women’s March in Pictures

The second day of the Trump administration saw an unprecedented wave of protests swell across the globe, as the Women’s March on Washington and its sister marches on all continents—yes, including Antarctica—fought back against the U.S. president’s frightening rhetoric.

Organizers estimated the total number of march participants at a stunning 2.5 million around the world. And with an estimated 500,000 marchers on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., the Women’s March was the largest inaugural protest in U.S. history.

    In a strange way as divisive as Trump was he did succeed in uniting people. Just goes to show the irony of life.

    I would love to see some more of those signs. They were so creative and applicable to the event. They did an excellent job with the signs, the hats, the pictures, etc. I wish that I had been there. Thank you for going.

    I was at the Washington march and am having fun assembling a cento poem from the signs people carried. I love the image from Antarctica.
