It wasn't just Washington. In fact, it wasn't just America. As thousands of American women took to the streets across the U.S. in the wake of the election of Donald Trump as president, similar marches were happening around the world--a demonstration of what participants said was global solidarity.
Cities where protests were held included Sydney, Australia; Cape Town, South Africa; Nairobi, Kenya; Budapest, Hungary; Rome; and London, bringing tens of thousands into the streets to stand up for women's rights and civil liberties, which many fear are now under threat with Trump in the White House.
"Girl Power vs Trump Tower," read a sign held aloft in Sydney as the crowd chanted: "When women's rights are under attack, what do we do, stand up, fight back."
