‘There are more people here today than yesterday’

On Saturday, January 21st, in the wake of President Donald Trump being sworn into office, more than three million women — and men — of all ages marched in cities around the US and vocalized support women’s rights and for broader equality. Protests have not been uncommon since the new US president was elected in November, but this one stood out for two reasons: first, for the sheer volume of people participating, not just in the US but around the globe; and because, by almost all accounts, the worldwide marches were peaceful events.

The Verge’s editors were on the ground in Washington, DC; New York City; San Francisco and Oakland, California; Park City, Utah; and Montpelier, Vermont to document what was widely expected to be a historic event. Below is a selection of photos from each city.

Editor’s note: This post has been updated to include a more current estimate of the number of people who participated in the march.
