Sister marches were held around the country, including one in Athens. While attendance numbers were down from the original march in 2017, organizers estimated around 100,000 people were at the D.C. march. Cydney Carpenter, a sophomore in OUCD, made her own pins for the march. Hailey Wheeler, also in OUCD, wore some of Carpenter’s pins. Hannah Pridemore, a sophomore in OUCD, held her sign for the march as she rode the Metro. A group of women from Michigan held their banners before the march began. The pink “pussyhats” have become a staple image of the Women’s March. Many protesters wore these hats to the march today, including Mady Nutter, a freshman in OUCD. A Women’s March volunteer held her sign as she directed march attendees. Nutter and Pridemore marched down Pennsylvania Avenue alongside one another. A young girl held her sign as her mother marched behind her. A woman smiles as she holds her sign. Many of the signs at the march referenced women running for office. In 2018, a record number of women were elected to federal office. After the march, some attendees moved toward the White House to protest. A man held up his sign from the march outside of the White House. Many of the signs at the march were also in protest of President Donald Trump as well as the partial government shutdown, which is the longest in history.
