#WomensMarch2018 brought hundreds of people together. From carrying anti-Trump signs to broadcasting #MeToo movement, Saturday’s campaign in Washington witnessed the largest single-day march in the US history.
Last year women drove in numbers on the streets of Washington after Donald Trump was sworn into office as the 45th President of the United States. Over the weekend, thousands of women marched a second time in major cities across the United States. The one-year anniversary event of the Women’s March to Washington comes a day after President Trump addressed anti-abortion activists at a March for Life rally. The days leading up to the March also saw the government failing to muster the 60 votes necessary to advance a stopgap spending measure.
Thousands of women protesters patiently watched speakers and performers’. Heard their passionate pleas, speeches and songs on Saturday. It is reported that more than 200,000 protesters attended the march in New York on Saturday, according to a senior adviser to Mayor Bill de Blasio, who cited the figure as the official count. The protesters also marched in Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Rome and hundreds of other cities and towns.
The message was loud and clear: We will not be shushed!
Here are some of the biggest moments of the streets:

When someone asks #WhyIMarch:
You didn’t need to do this.
But you did.
I march for the dreamers you didn’t protect.

When Twitteratis go against intolerance, racism, and sexism:
Today, we will witness once again heroes marching together as one to stand against hate and bigotry, to stand against intolerance, to stand against racism, to stand against sexism, to stand for morality, to stand for decency, to stand for love. Save the world. 👊#WomensMarch2018
