On Jan 21, 2017, people across the world rallied at women's marches. The biggest one being in Washington, the capital on the Unites States, after Donald Trump's first steps as a president.

According to city officials, the rally in Washington attracted roughly half a million people who were chanting "Welcome to your first day, we will not go away!".

The marches took place accross the US - people were out in Washington, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, among other cities. And also in other countries like London, Sydney, Berlin, Paris, Prague, and even Mexico City.

While Trump's inaguration wasn't the specific reason for the march, it had a big part in it. The main idea behind the march was to support women's rights as well as civil rights.
