More than two million Americans joined women in a nationwide march movement on Jan.21 to protest Donald Trump’s inauguration, making it the largest one-day protest in U.S. history to date.

Trump’s lewd and insensitive comments about women and minorities that were made during his campaign were not forgotten by the millions of people who protested his swearing into office. Women and minorities alike gathered in major cities across the country to show the newly appointed President that they will not be silenced, and that a united America is a stronger America.

Atlanta, Chicago, New York City, Boston, Denver, and most notably Washington D.C. saw thousands upon thousands of protesters fill the streets. Many took to social media to post photos and videos on chants, speeches, and signs to spread the message.

Here are some highlights.
