Millions fill streets across the world. 

Yesterday close to 2 million people gathered in Washington and many cities around the world to fight for women’s rights. Originally the march was organized by a retiree in Hawaii, but caught fire thanks to social media. Many women were inspired to take part because of Trump’s divisive campaign and patently offensive remarks towards women.  The voice of those who marched in Washington was amplified thanks to other marches that took place in other cities in the U.S. and in cities like Tel Aviv, Barcelona, Mexico City and Berlin. In stark contrast to the violent protests that took place on inauguration day, there were zero incidents or arrests reported.
