Women’s March on Washington

After a 22 hour day covering the inauguration of President Trump, I picked up an assignment to cover the Women’s March on Washington for United Press International. And as everyone knows, I love a protest. I have never seen so many people at a protest. A couple of other colleagues of mine have also said they have never seen a protest that large.

Here is a selection of images from the march.

Hundreds of thousands of people make their way to the National Mall on January 21, 2017 in Washington, for the Women’s March on Washington. The marchers came from across the country to make a public stand against President Donald Trump, who they say insults women and issues they care about. Around noon, event organizers decided the crowd was too big to march to the White House. Photo by Pete Marovich/UPI
