Hundreds of thousands marched in more than 300 cites across the world on Saturday in the second Women's March.
In New York, thousands crammed the streets carrying signs about the Trump administration, women's rights, reproductive rights and more.
We asked protesters how this year's march was different and why they decided to participate.
"So, my entire life, she basically like let my dad walk all over her. And I saw that as a kid, and I was like, ‘That's never how I'm going to be when I get older. I need to speak up and stand up for being a woman and not let anybody walk all over me.’ That’s like the core of my activism is, what I saw growing up in my family. Your own home.
"I want to stand with my sisters, and I want to represent black feminists. I texted a bunch of my friends and they just didn't seem interested but I didn't want that to hold me back. In history, we've seen that black women have to either choose between the black women’s movement or the feminist movement. I feel like those can be converged and that intersectionality is really important. So, I'm here, even though I'm standing alone, by myself, to represent that."
So, you know, at some point you feel like, 'Do I really have to do this again?' But I guess you know democracy is a very fragile institution and we really need to protect it and be out there fighting for it every day."
"That was the work environment that I was raised in, and that’s what my mom put up with. It was sort of like this generational putting up with it, and I said, “Well you shouldn’t put up with it.” She was like, ‘Well, how are you going to change it?’ And I said, “Well, having conversations and saying no, stop, that’s not OK.” But you know, as a 21-year-old intern who wanted a recommendation at the time, I was scared. The woman I respected the most was telling me to just let it go, because it had happened to her. So I think we’re dismantling layers of intergenerational trauma.”
"We want the best for our daughter. You know we want her to grow up knowing that she can be anything that she wants to be and can be. You know, just pursue anything in life. She's 7. So, this morning when we where talking about the march, my emphasis was just you know, we march because we want everybody to be nice to everybody. Whether a girl or a boy or whether you are this or that. Everybody just needs to be nice and respectful to everybody. And I think that's something that she can comprehend for now."
