Women's March NYC Crowd Size: How Many Attended? [PHOTOS & VIDEOS]

Hundreds of thousands gathered around the nation Saturday, wielding signs and sporting pink hats, at Women's Marches in numerous cities around the USA - the second such protest since Donald Trump entered the White House.

The coordinated Saturday rallies in Washington, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and about 250 other cities are a reprise of the mass protests that marked the beginning of Trump's presidency.

January 21, 2017, thousands of people flocked to Washington, and many other thousands gathered in across the country to march and bring awareness to the inequality and challenges facing women across the globe.

In Manhattan, a diverse crowd descended on Central Park West, the avenue that borders the city's beloved park and arrives at the foot of the Trump International Hotel - part of the magnate-turned-commander-in-chief's real estate empire. On Friday, hundreds of Haitian Americans gathered at the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City and marched into Manhattan and up to Trump Tower to protest Donald Trump's racist remark last week wherein he referred to Haiti - as well as African countries - as a "shithole".

Bennett defeated Republican incumbent John Carman, who had mocked the 2017 women's march in Washington, D.C. with a Facebook post asking whether the women would be home in time to cook dinner.

With apparent sarcasm, Trump tweeted, "Beautiful weather all over our great country, a ideal day for all women to march".

Numerous protesters wore pink knit "pussy hats", which were created for last year's march as a reference to a comment made by Trump about female genitalia.

The main event for the 2018 Women's March, entitled "Power to the Polls", will take place Sunday in Las Vegas, where organizers will launch a national voter registration and mobilization initiative. They aim to secure a million more voter registrations, pushing for more pro-women candidates to take office over the next few years.

"Beautiful weather all over our great country, a flawless day for all Women to March", he tweeted at 1:51 p.m. "I am going to keep working at this", said Glaven, a biologist from Mount Pleasant, Md. "Where people can learn how they can get engaged in the community on issues they care about like immigration, reproductive rights, protection for survivors of domestic violence", said Mattson.

The event, she said, was about channeling women's energy and "putting that power in the polls".

"We want to celebrate these women leaders, and encourage more women to run and join them in the General Assembly", Ramos said.

Actress Viola Davis speaks at the 2018 Women's March in California. "Marches like these that are happening all over the planet today are really important to show the rest of the world that women are here, we want our rights, and we want them right now".

Actress and director Asia Argento, who accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, shared her story with the crowds in Rome.

"I am speaking today not just for the MeToos, because I was a me too, but when I raise my hand, I am aware of all the women who are still in silence".

Woodard urged everyone to register and vote, saying, "the 2018 midterms start now". This year for me, it's about equal status for women.
