Women’s march in Washington and around the world for our hope for Human Rights and Humanity as a whole
January 21, 201711:19 AM ET
Sister marches have been organized in all 50 states, several U.S. territories and countries around the world. They have tried to express solidarity with the aims of the original march: opposition to President Trump’s agenda, and support of women’s rights and human rights in general.
Given the quirks of time zones, many of those marches kicked off before the event that inspired them. In Sydney, London, New Delhi, and other cities, demonstrators broke out their signs and pink hats before even their compatriots in D.C. could.
Straight from NPR and member station reporters on the ground: Here’s a glimpse of the marches Saturday — across the country, and around the world.
