On Jan. 21, a day after President Trump’s inauguration, women rose up and marched: over five million worldwide and one million in Washington, D.C.

The historic march is believed by some to be the largest demonstration in American history. The Women’s March on Washington has given us a preview of the power of women in today’s ever-more connected society.
