WASHINGTON — More than half a million demonstrators were projected to attend the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday, but it was hardly the only place people were rallying for women’s rights and other issues.
At the Women’s March website’s last count, 673 sister marches and rallies took place on Saturday, and an estimated 4,814,000 people marched worldwide.
At least one march was forced to change to a rally due to such large crowds. After all, it’s not easy to keep hundreds of thousands of people mobile in an urban environment.
Here are some of the marches and rallies and other gatherings from around the U.S.
