The Women’s March established itself in 2017, leading the first London march on January 21st in opposition to Donald Trump’s first official day of presidency.
The Women’s march has become a global sensation, with many women-led marches taking place in Washington D.C., Los Angeles and New York. Women around the world come together and march to protect crucial human rights, and to celebrate the heroic activists that have stood before us.
