On January 21, one day after Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States, women and allies in cities across the USA and countries throughout the world marched in protest in record numbers.
Women rallied in the Ozarks, but nowhere was the crowd bigger than here. So many people have turned out for the Women's March in Chicago that organizers have canceled their plans to march through downtown. "The future is uncertain, but we remain committed to working together on behalf our community", said Terry Uyeki, organizer of the Eureka rally.
"I wanted to be able to go on and tell people, 'Just buy your ticket, don't wait, ' " she said. The peaceful march epitomized the ideology of protest to make social change as taught during the Civil Rights Movement under Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. The Women's March on Washington organisers estimated that 3,477,000 marchers in 673 sister marches took to the streets yesterday to show their support.
Nicole, who lived in DC, said she was taking part to stand up for people's rights.
Both women belonged to the Connecticut Pantsuit Nation - a Facebook group originally created to connect Hillary Clinton supporters - and had chatted online a few times.

For all the positivity in the aftermath of Saturday's Women's March on London, there was always going to be some negativity. Sister marches were held elsewhere in the country and even worldwide, and concrete estimates of the Women's March turnout from around the world are now trickling in.
Members of Oxford's longest running acapella group the Alternotives led chants such as, "tell me what democracy looks like? this is what democracy looks like!", and, "back up back up, we want freedom, freedom, all these racist sexist systems, we don't need 'em, need 'em", as the protesters walked from the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square to a rally in Trafalgar Square. Call us biased, but we were especially impressed with what we witnessed firsthand of kids at the march - there, not because their parents dragged them along, but because they considered it a privilege to be seen and heard.
"I am here to support women, and push for our rights". The protest there was notably larger than the crowd for Trump's inauguration the previous day. "I have two sons, and I don't want any of this administration's policies or Trump statements to become normalized".
In order to keep this country moving in the right direction, we need to protect and defend the rights of our citizens, not infringe on reproductive rights, voting rights, human rights and every other right we are owed under the Constitution regardless of gender, race, religion, sexuality, economics or anything else. The marchers and their placards were witty and whilst there are times when it is necessary to be serious, I'm glad yesterday's march wasn't one of them.
All the participants in the marches were united against discrimination against women and xenophobia.
