How the Women's March swept the globe

On Jan. 21, tens of thousands of women poured into the streets to protest against Donald Trump's presidency and to campaign for women's rights and human rights.

Massive crowds took to the streets in Washington D.C and across the US, with many of them donning pink hats with cat ears — a nod to Trump’s comment about grabbing women “by the pussy.”

Similarly, many of sister marches have already taken place in around 600 locations across the globe.

From Australia to India, the Czech Republic to the UK, thousands of women have taken to the streets in the name of equality, equal rights, civil rights and economic opportunity.

The following are several pictures of women and men who gathered in solidarity with the Washington D.C protest, which was the site of the main protest.
