An estimated 1.2 million people peacefully protested against the Trump Presidency and put forth women’s issues on January 21st, the day after the inauguration, in Washington, D.C. (according to the Women’s March organizers).  Meanwhile, an estimated 5 million people marched in solidarity across all seven continents – yes, even Antarctica.  Many of the marchers were wearing pink pussycat hats, in response to Trump’s comment about “grabbing them by the pussy.”  A wide range of creative signs were on display including “So bad even introverts are here!,” “This pussy is not up for grabs” and “Love Trumps Hate.”
