Photos: 4th annual Women’s March draws protesters across the country

Thousands of protesters took part in women’s marches on Saturday, with a main event in Washington, D.C., and sister marches taking place across the country.

Organizers had anticipated 116,000 in-person and virtual participants at what turned out to be 438 #CountonUs marches
across all 50 states. They said tens of thousands showed up.

This year’s goal was to ensure that the 1.25 million women on the organization’s list vote and bring three friends.

“Women showed up in force on day 1 of Trump’s presidency for the first Women’s March, and now we’re mobilizing to finish what we started,” Rachel O’Leary Carmona, the executive director of Women’s March said in a statement. “Trump’s presidency began with women taking to the streets, and that’s how it’s going to end.”
