The morning after the inauguration of the least popular incoming president in modern history, millions boarded all manner of transportation to head to their nearest (or dearest) Women’s March. Many flew or took trains or buses to Washington, DC for the march there. Others went to cities near them.
The numbers are not in yet but there are estimates – almost all of which exceeded expectations. Washington, DC expected 200,000. Estimates are that a half a million showed up. In New York City, the crowd was so large that for hours the march could not move appreciably for lack of space. The same thing happened in Chicago where organizers transformed the march into a rally – no space for people to march! Reports are that the same thing occurred in Los Angeles.
Portland ME police estimated this to be the largest demonstration they had ever encountered. Boston organizers think 150,000 attended there. People tweeted pictures of crowds in Denver, Nashville, Asheville, Atlanta, Sioux City, Phoenix, of a human chain across the Golden Gate Bridge. Across the nation they marched – in the rain in Los Angeles and the Bay Area, and in the snow in Boise and Anchorage.
Here are a few of my favorite images from the day starting with a sea of pink pussyhats in the nation’s capital.
Paris put its message in lights.
The Brits displayed their characteristic reserve. They had the best signs.
My favorite Brit marched and spoke in New York and declared herself a New Yorker.
A human traffic jam in Los Angeles.
A human chain across the Golden Gate Bridge.
In blinding snow in Anchorage.
A note from a flight attendant who had to work to a passenger who was attending.
The human traffic jam on NY’s 5th Avenue that lasted for hours.
This woman tweeted that she wasn’t ovary-acting.
One guy we know brought his best friend along for his first day as a private citizen.
His predecessor tweeted her support.
Thanks for standing, speaking & marching for our values
@womensmarch. Important as ever. I truly believe we’re always Stronger Together.
‘Hope Not Fear’ Indeed. And what a beautiful piece by Louisa Cannell.
I stand w/ Nora Harren, a 17-year from Boise, ID, & every person marching for our values today. Onward!
Here is a report on estimated numbers and the size and scope. These numbers are expected to be revised upwards.
On the sidelines, this day, Donald Trump attended the National Prayer Breakfast and visited CIA HQ in Langley, VA to tell them what a yuge inauguration he had (it looked like a million – a million-and-a-half people to the guy who saw imaginary thousands in Jersey City celebrating the fall of the towers) and how spectacular the weather had been (it rained – George W. Bush struggled with a plastic poncho). Later his Press Sec stormed into the White House press room to scold the media for telling the truth about the paltry attendance yesterday. He said this was the largest inauguration ever. Period. He took no questions and left in a huff.
The rest of the country and the free world was busy having a lovely Saturday all together. No incidents, no arrests, and according to actress Ally Sheedy, a patrol officer told her how wonderful everyone looked. Madonna dropped the F-bomb twice and they cheered. Everyone was included – babies in strollers and seniors in wheelchairs. It was a great day in history!
Oh! And THIS!

The Women’s March is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Saturday morning in Washington D.C.
More than 600 “sister marches” have been organized all over the U.S. and on every continent.
The organization has published “Unity Principles.”
We believe that Women’s Rights are Human Rights and Human Rights are Women’s Rights. We must create a society in which women – including Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, disabled women, Muslim women, lesbian queer and trans women – are free and able to care for and nurture their families, however they are formed, in safe and healthy environments free from structural impediments.
All Hillary Clinton supporters recognize the underlined words in that first sentence as Hillary’s, yet they are unattributed in the organization’s text. What is more disturbing is that in the full pdf, Hillary is not listed as one of the women being honored.
#WHYWEMARCHWe are empowered by the legions of revolutionary leaderswho paved the way for us to march, and acknowledge those around the globe who fight for our freedoms. We honor these women and so many more. They are #WHYWEMARCH.Bella Abzug • Corazon Aquino • Ella Baker • Grace Lee Boggs • Berta Cáceres • Rachel Carson • Shirley Chisholm • Angela Davis • Miss Major Griffin Gracy • LaDonna Harris • Dorothy I. Height • bell hooks • Judith Heumann •Dolores Huerta • Marsha P. Johnson • Barbara Jordan • Yuri Kochiyama • Winona LaDuke • Audre Lorde • Wilma Mankiller • Diane Nash • Sylvia Rivera • Barbara Smith • Gloria Steinem • Hannah G. Solomon • Harriet Tubman • Edith Windsor • Malala Yousafzai
WTF, you ask? Good question! Why is the first woman ever to win the nomination of a major political party for the office of President of the United States not on this list? Outrageous!

Daily, it is as if someone has asked him if he possibly could be a little more repellent and disgusting.
While half of all polled would be embarrassed to have Trump as president, the majority of that sentiment comes from Democrats and independents.
For Republicans, 44 percent would be proud to have Trump in the White House, twice as much as GOP voters who would be embarrassed.
The “proud” ones do not understand how offensive that word was. He hit a new, nauseating low on the sleaze-o-meter. Revolting!

Did Trump not say we should all speak English?
Oy vey! Enough of Trump. (a good bilingual take-down from Dana Milbank)
