Men and women from around the country will descend on Washington, D.C., on January 21, 2017 for a "Women's March on Washington" that organizers hope will see millions in the street, a day after President-elect Trump's inauguration.
The demonstrators repudiate the sexist, racist, and Islamophobic remarks that were a touchstone of Trump's presidential campaign.
Various Facebook pages about the march—organizers in each state are creating their own delegation—have all gone viral, a testament to the powerful opposition to a Trump presidency and what that will mean for women, among other marginalized groups. So far, over 83,000 people have signed up to take part.
