What was originally planned as a counter event to Friday's Presidential inauguration, the Women's March On Washington has spread to all fifty states and even worldwide with messages of solidarity and resistance, according to reports from Al Jazeera, and NPR.

Women's Marches are now underway the day after President Trump's election in all major cities in all fifty states including New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, Los Angeles, and abroad in Spain, New Zealand, Australia, and the U.K. The main event in Washington D.C. is estimated to have half a million people in attendance, according to the Washington Post, which greatly outnumbers the number of people in attendance at the actual inauguration on Friday.

The marches all center around similar issues such as women's reproductive rights, immigration, and civil rights, though many have received criticism after it seemed like marginalized voices were left out of organizer and leadership positions.

The main event in Washington D.C. will feature performances by Janelle Monae, Indigo Girls, Angelique Kidjo, and speeches from Gloria Steinum, Angela Davis and Ashley Judd; livestream it via The New York Times here.
