The 2018 Women's March was an undeniable success. Early reports indicate that this year's protest had an even higher turnout than last year's, on the day following Donald Trump's inauguration.
This year, the speeches focused on voting and bringing women to the polls on Nov. 6 as well as issues like activism and #TimesUp.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand urged her New York crowd to vote: "If you care about winning back the House, flipping the Senate, then I urge you to support Democratic candidates all across the country. Whatever issue is most important to you, each one of you is an agent of change."
Others, like Delegate Kelly Fowler of Virginia, encouraged women to take it a step further and run for office. "Last year I marched, then I ran — then I won."

The most influential people in my life have always been women. My family, my friends, my teachers, my colleagues, and my idols. I am obsessed with all the women in my life. I adore them and need them more and more every day. I am so grateful to be a woman, I wouldn't change it for the world. I hope I'm not only defined by my gender though. I hope I'm defined by my input to the world, my ability to love and to have empathy. To raise my son to be a a good man alongside the good man who loves me for everything I am and am not. I want what's best for people, I think we all do. We just can't agree on what that is. Power to the peaceful, power to the people x #womensmarch2018
Right now, the next chapter of the women’s movement is being written—and it’s up to each and every one of us to help author it by fighting for what we believe in. #WomensMarch pic.twitter.com/0K1NNeyUDT— Kirsten Gillibrand (@SenGillibrand) January 21, 2018
