The Women’s March was a worldwide protest on January 21, 2017, to protect legislation and policies regarding human rights and other issues, including women’s rights, immigration reform, healthcare reform, the natural environment, LGBTQ rights, racial equality, freedom of religion, and workers’ rights. The rallies were also aimed at Donald Trump, immediately following his inauguration as President of the United States, largely due to statements and positions attributed to him regarded by many as anti-women or offensive. It is the largest single-day demonstration in U.S. history. The march drew at least 500,000 people in Washington and Los Angeles, and some estimates put worldwide participation at 4.8 million. At least 408 marches were planned in the U.S. and 168 in 81 other countries. (Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia).
