#WomensMarch protesters resist new US president Donald Trump

23 January, 05:27 PM


More than two million people around the world joined women-led protest #WomensMarch on Saturday to rebuke US president Donald Trump. 

The goals for the march were to echo the notion “women’s rights are human rights”.

The event's organization shortly came after Election Day when a Facebook post by Hawaiian grandmother Teresa Shook asked all women to come together and march on the 45th President’s inauguration ceremony.

The march has sparked ‘Sister Marches’ from all over the world with a total of 4.6 million people joining in solidarity. 

The Women's March on Washington became the biggest one-day protest in US history, with a total of 470 000 people in the US. The organisation has launched a campaign "10 Actions for the first 100 days" to further take actions on issues faced by women.
