The best moments from the Women's March on Washington D.C
Scroll through the hashtag #WomensMarch for more
Women and men from all over the world made history when they came together to march against Donald Trump and his anti-feminist policies last Saturday, 21 January. According to New York Times, the crowd that turned up for the march was three times the crowd that attended Trump's inauguration on Friday.
Reports say that over 500,000 people alone turned up in Washington D.C. But the march wasn't just limited to the people in Washington D.C as others from Sydney, Dubai, Florence, Prague, Hawaii, Spain, Rome, Paris, London, Switzerland and even Antarctica have also held their own rallies.
Some flocked to the streets wearing what they called 'pussy hats', which were pink and had cat ears. The hats were a symbolic response to "what Donald Trump said about grabbing women without their consent. Which is not OK."
Celebrities like America Ferrera, Madonna, Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna, Emma Watson, Sir Ian McKellen, Jessica Chastain, Lena Dunham, Chelsea Handler and Katy Perry also supported the movement and attended marches.
