Women around the world gathered on Saturday, January 21, 2017, on Donald Trump’s first full day as president of the United States, to call for “parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society.” Hundreds of thousands of people poured into the streets of Washington, D.C. for the Women’s March on Washington, and there were hundreds of “sister marches” across the U.S. and around the world.
