Anti-Trump Women’s March Takes Over Multiple Cities

On Saturday, hundreds of thousands of women across the world marched in protest of President Trump.

In places like Washington DC, New York City, Denver, London, Berlin, Madrid and Sydney, demonstrations were held for women to show their disdain for the 45th US president.   

In the early morning hours, massive amounts of women began posting pictures on social media of themselves headed to the marches wearing pink “p***y hats.”

 

Ashley Judd, America Ferrera and Scarlett Johansson were set to speak at the event in Washington, D.C., where Cher, Katy Perry, and Amy Schumer will all be in attendance.

As the demonstrations kicked off, protesters chanted “Thank you Obama!” then listened to a speech given by Ferrera, who said, “The president is not America, his cabinet is not America. We are America, and we are here to stay.”

She went on to say, “We reject the demonization of our Muslim brothers and sisters, we demand an end to the system murder and incarceration of our black brothers and sisters, we will not give our rights to safe and legal abortions, we will not ask our LGBTQ families to go backwards, we will not go from being a nation of immigrants to a nation of ignorance.”

“We won’t build walls and we won’t see the worst in each other and we won’t turn our backs on the more than 750,000 young immigrants in this country. Together we, all of us, will fight, resist and oppose every action that threatens the lives and dignity of any and all of our communities. Marchers, make no mistake. We are, every single one of us, on attack,” Ferrera continued.

March organizers stated that more than 600 sister marches are also happening in places as far as London, Sydney, Auckland, Berlin, and Cape Town in South Africa. According to the official Women’s March website, there are more than two million registered marchers.

Also speaking at the Washington, DC event were Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, Maryum Ali, whose father is the late Muhammad Ali, and Ilyasah Shabazz, the daughter of Malcom X.

While the Women’s March released a list of 27 women who “paved the way for us to march.” It didn’t take long for many people to notice that there was one major name missing from the roster: Hillary Clinton.

While, she did not attend, Hillary Clinton did tweet about the protest:

 

 

One Southwest flight that was jam packed with women on their way to the demonstrations, even lit the cabin up in pink to honor the protesters.
