RadioOnFire.com – The fourth annual Women’s March descended on the streets of Washington on Saturday. But unlike the first demonstration that brought hundreds of thousands to the capital on the day after President Trump’s inauguration, the march drew just a fraction of the original turnout as the movement has struggled with changes in leadership and questions about inclusivity.
The demonstration in Washington was the main march, but sister marches were also held in more than 200 cities around the world, including Los Angeles, Chicago and Brussels.
As snowflakes began to fall in Washington, protesters gathered at Freedom Plaza to hear several members of the Women’s March board speak before taking off on the designated route around the White House. This year, the march focused on three main issues: climate change, reproductive rights and immigration.
