More than half a million people took to the streets on Washington DC to protest against President Donald Trump, with more than two million more demonstrating around the world.
Washington DC, Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia were among the first cities in America to kick off the Women's Marches one day after Trump's inauguration.
A District of Columbia official said there will be no formal march led from the protest stage near the Capitol in DC because the route is filled with hundreds of thousands of protesters who are physically unable to move.
The crowd, estimated by the official as more than 500,000 people, is still expected to move toward the Ellipse, an area of the National Mall in front of the White House.
Organizers told DailyMail.com: 'We are marching. We are marching straight ahead toward the Washington monument to the Ellipse of the White House.'
The protesters turned DC into a sea of pink thanks to their 'p***yhats', the official accessory of the demonstration
‘I woke up this morning, picked up the Washington Post, and the headline read “Trump takes power”’.
‘I don’t think so, here’s the power, here’s the majority of America, right here,' he said as the crowd erupted in cheers. 'We are the majority.'
Protesters chanted 'Thank you Obama!' before the rally kicked off at 10am with a rousing speech from actress America Ferrera.
‘The president is not America, his cabinet is not America,' Ferrera began. ‘We are America, and we are here to stay. We march for our families, for our neighbors, for our futures.’
