The Women’s March begun today. Millions of women all over the country have been mobilizing today. They have been marching in Los Angeles, New York, Utah, South Dakota, Chicago – all in a massive protest against Donald Trump. But it’s gone even beyond the States, women are marching all over the globe. From Paris, France to Sydney, Australia. This is obviously something that Trump has yet to even acknowledge.
“Thanks for standing, speaking & marching for our values @womensmarch. Important as ever. I truly believe we’re always Stronger Together.” – Hillary Clinton wrote on Twitter.
According to police and fire departments, there were more than 100,00 people in attendance marching in the streets in Los Angeles. And if you spoke to people on the ground, they would tell you that nearly 750,000 people attended the march in the city. There were noteworthy celebs who spoke and gave speeches both in Washington and in Los Angeles.
“We will not allow our bodies to be owned and controlled by men in government, or men anywhere for that matter. We will not allow our compassionate souls to get stepped on. We want the best for all Americans. No hate, no bigotry, no Muslim registry. We value education, health care and equality.” – Alicia Keys
“President Trump, I did not vote for you,” Ms. Johansson said. “I want to be able to support you. But first I ask that you support me. Support my sister. Support my mother. Support my best friend and all of our girlfriends.” – Scarlett Johansson
“Together, we will fight, resist, and oppose every single single action that threatens the lives and dignity of any and all of our community.” – America Ferrera
A number of women were also making their thoughts known by wearing pink knitted caps, which are known as “pussyhats.” In obvious reference to Trump’s deplorable and rapey comments regarding women.

A march was cancelled today in Chicago due to the amount of people that showed up. “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 said to the crowd.
There are also images clearly indicating that there were more people marching in the streets today in Washington than there were for Trumps inauguration.
Regardless, there are more people and women around the country and globe who are supporting this Women’s March, than those who supported Trump on Friday.
