The Women’s March Around the World
The world first heard about the Women’s March on Washington back in November. Back then, it was understood that the organized protest was going to be a direct response to the gender inequalities against females many feared we would face under the leader of Donald Trump. But what occurred yesterday was the largest inaugural protest in history. It was so large, in fact, that it topped attendance at Donald Trump’s inauguration. The movement grew to such levels that it left US borders and grew into a global mission shared by the world: women’s rights for all.
Though the main march was in Washington DC, at least 600 cities around the world formed similar protests and marches. Women of all backgrounds, men, and kids like us all came together to fight for women’s rights. Celebrities attended protests as well, giving powerful speeches and speaking out for what’s right.
Take a look at just a few of the photos from around the world.
Did you attend a march? I’d love to hear about it!
