A "counter-inauguration"--that's how the New York Times is describing the Women's March on Washington. The protest, which has spilled out of the U.S. capital to cities around the world, has gathered women and feminists to speak out against what they consider hateful and demeaning rhetoric from President Donald Trump. Many of the speakers, from actress American Ferrara to feminist Gloria Steinem, are expected to highlight issues of race, gender, immigration, and LGBTQ identity during the march in D.C.
Estimates on Washington attendees vary from 200,000 to almost a half-million people. Many of the protesters are distinguishable from their pink beanies, also called "pussyhats," a transgressive call back to leaked tape during Trump's campaign where he talked about grabbing women "by the pussy."
