On Jan. 21, the day after president Donald Trump was inaugurated, an estimated 20,000 people marched to the California State Capitol as a part of a Women’s March.
Some of the topics of discussion in the Marches included women’s reproductive rights, equality among the sexes and opposition to Trump’s presidency.
Check back later for a feature on some of the alumni who attended other Women’s Marches in the 370 other locations around the world.
