An estimated 2.6 million people are participating in more than 600 marches worldwide, according to the Women’s March on Washington website. From Antarctica to South Africa and Japan, women and allies have taken the day after Trump’s inauguration to demonstrate and march for women—including trans women, women of color, and other minority groups anticipated to be negatively impacted by the nation’s new leader.
Within the U.S. alone, the day’s marches spanned the East and West Coasts, but also speckled much of the Bible Belt and Midwest, red states that voted for the president.
As many as 50,000 people gathered at the Capitol building in Austin, Texas in protest.
More than 10,000 protesters marched along in New Orleans.
In St. Petersburg, Florida, more than 17,000 registered to attend the Women’s March.
The march portion of the protest in Chicago was cancelled after an estimated 250,000 attendees flooded downtown, but that didn’t stop the demonstration itself.
The crowd fills Chicago’s Jackson Boulevard Saturday for the Women’s March on Chicago. The march portion of the rally was technically canceled after a mushrooming crowd an estimated 250,000 packed the downtown event. “Our march route is flooded. There is no safe way to march. We are just going to sing and dance and make our voices heard here,” rally and march co-chairwoman Ann Scholhmer told the crowd at Jackson and Columbus drives just before 11 a.m. Photo by John J.
