Over 40,000 women and their allies spent Saturday, January 20, marching in Oakland to support women. It was the second annual Women’s March Oakland; the one in 2017, coinciding with the inauguration of President Donald Trump, drew a crowd estimated at up to 100,000 people.
Around the rest of the country, the 2018 marches drew more than a million people.
This year, organizers will focus on registering voters, leading up to midterm elections in November, as well as on helping more women run for public office.
