The day after President Trump’s Jan. 20 inauguration, hundreds of thousands of men and women marched in Washington, D.C. and around the world in protest of the new president’s treatment of women and minorities. Reports say the march brought three times the amount of people to the Nation’s Capitol than the inauguration ceremony did.
14th Street writer Brianna Baker traveled to Washington and documented the historic march.
