About 500,000 people descended onto the capital for the Women’s March

The second day of the Trump administration has seen an unprecedented wave of protests gather across the globe, as the Women’s March on Washington and protests all around the world speak out against the U.S. president’s incendiary rhetoric. Crowds appeared to dwarf yesterday’s inauguration ceremony.

Organizers’ unofficial tally now puts the total number of participants in the marches at 2.5 million around the world. And with an estimated 500,000 marchers on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., the Women’s March is now the largest inaugural protest in U.S. history.

Participants and journalists alike have been capturing the spirit of unity and solidarity against our president. Here is some of what they are documenting:
