Organizers Estimate Women's March Crowd At 300000

President Trump Tweets Support for Women's March

Marchers held signs addressing issues from science to women's rights.

"This march and this movement is far more ambitious in scope and scale and it extends beyond one political actor or even one political party", Longoria, who is best known for her role as Gabrielle Solis on the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) television series Desperate Housewives, said at the rally.

"We are with you all the way", Trump told the anti-abortion demonstrators.

Hundreds of thousands of people demonstrated on Saturday in cities across the US and overseas, as part of protests organized by the group Women's March. And so, today, in this rally and the marches that we saw over the weekend, we see people who are feeling affected by these policies or proposed policies showing up.

The national organization anticipates holding events similar to the one in Las Vegas in battleground states throughout the year as part of a national effort to energize female voters, said Fendlay.

Crowd estimates for the march in Washington were down from last year's gathering.

Los Angeles MayorEric Garcetti estimated the crowd in the city at 600,000, and said it was largest march in the country.

San Francisco - northern California's cultural, commercial and financial center - attracted the largest number of demonstrators in the USA west region around Saturday noon.

There was no immediate comment from the United States on the offensive, but ahead of its launch, a senior U.S. But a spokesperson for the YPG, Nouri Mahmoudi, said the Turkish troops had been "forced to retreat".

Once Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president, it didn't take long [VIDEO]before it was clear he wouldn't get much support from women in the United States.

The themes of the march and events to follow are "March into Action" and "Power to the Polls", attempted to garner support for the anti-Trump movement leading into the mid-term elections due this year. 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.

Director Rob Reiner told Women's March demonstrators that past year many people joined the march because they were scared of who was going to enter the White House. "Let's get our women out to vote". "I just don't understand why there isn't more of a backlash". "I think change will come from the midterm elections", she said.

"We want to continue the fight to resist this President and the policies we're against", said Sara Piper, 59, a geologist from Reston, Virginia.

A band played; people danced; a young girl asked a woman if she could pet her dog; shoppers walked, shopping bags in hand, in the opposite direction of tides of people. I tell this today not for me, but really for all of you.

Joblessness among women was 3.7 per cent in December, below the overall USA unemployment rate of 4.1 percent, according to the Labor Department. "There is not a day that goes by that I don't do something", she said.

"Last year, I just felt kind of angry and impassioned".

"We are unhappy with the current administration and what it stands for, and want our voices to be heard", Saunders said.
