63 Moving Photos & Videos That Embody the Spirit of the 2019 Women’s March

Marchers gathered across the globe on Saturday for the third annual Women’s March, and despite several obstacles, the turnout proved to be impressive and the message powerful.

Due to the government shutdown, the original plans to gather at the National Mall had to be altered (the National Park Service would not be able to plow in the event of snow), so the start was ultimately rerouted to Freedom Plaza.

Nevertheless, marchers persisted.

Harsh winter weather from Canada down into New England and even into the Midwest meant dealing with frigid temps, ice and snow.

Nevertheless, marchers persisted.

Hundreds of thousands of women and men in more than 300 cities across America and many foreign cities persisted to encourage camaraderie, to fight for equality and to underscore the importance of inclusion across gender, race and religious lines.
