This weekend there were 408 marches reported in the U.S. and 168 in other countries. It is estimated that the march drew around 500,000 to D.C. alone, and 2.9 million people in U.S. The protests were held in dozens of American towns and cities and nearly five million people took part in them. Demonstrators were seeking to raise awareness for women’s and minority rights amid fears over Mr Trump’s comments on a wide range of groups, including Mexican immigrants, Muslims and the disabled.
“The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights,” says their official website.
