Across the U.S., women (and men) are turning out for the third annual Women’s March — a show of power by a formidable voting block that helped propel the Democratic Party to a Midterm election “blue wave” that saw Republicans lose control of the House under Donald Trump.
Marches and rallies were scheduled across the country — as well as around the world — on Saturday despite the extremely cold weather in the U.S. midwest and the east, and, as always, the protest signs were both clever and to the point.
