On the anniversary Trump’s inauguration this past Saturday, thousands of women took to the streets and podiums to protest the bigot-in-chief and his racist, sexist, and classist agenda. Worldwide, an estimated 4 million people attended the Women’s March in 2017, reported The Cut. And while there was no official count for this years happening, individual reports from the 200-plus events planned in cities like New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angelos, San Francisco, Seattle, and Oakland, put the number of attendees across the country at around 1 million.

According to the New York Times, the sustained momentum behind the Women’s March this year may be due, in part, to campaigns like TIME’S UP and the #MeToo movement, which reflect a nation-wide determination to reverse abusive and unequal power structures.  The March also helped fire-up fledgling and future campaigns aimed to increase equality, and is part of a plan to build momentum and increase voter turnout for the upcoming midterm elections, aiming to encourage progressive women and their allies will vote to demand social and political reform.
