2nd annual Women's March: A multi-city mass rally

Yahoo News Photo Staff

Thousands of women and their male supporters turned out on Saturday for the second Women’s March, a nationwide series of protests against U.S. President Donald Trump marking the end of his tumultuous first year in office.

The coordinated rallies in Washington, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and about 250 other cities in the United States, as well as overseas locations, featured speaker after speaker blasting Trump for policies that many said hurt women and urging voters to turn out for congressional elections in November.

The Republican president responded with a Twitter message touting the economic gains of the past year and how they benefited women. (Reuters)
