On Saturday, the streets of Washington, DC filled with women (and men) marching against the Trump administration and the new president's history of misogyny and sexism.

But DC wasn't the only site of a mass woman's protest (estimates put the crowd's attendance at 500,000—over twice the initial predictions). Around the world, women and men gathered for massive global Women's Marches, in solidarity with their compatriots in Washington.


In London, an estimated 100,000 people marched through that city's Trafalgar Square.

In Paris, an estimated 10,000 people gathered in front of the Eiffel Tower before marching through the city.

Women took to the streets in Nairobi, Kenya.

And Accra, Ghana.

Women marched in Sydney, Australia, where estimates ranged from 8,000 to 10,000 participants.

In Berlin, crowds gathered in front of the iconic Brandenburg Gate, where Trump's promise of building a wall strikes a particularly raw nerve.

Crowds chanted "build bridges, not walls," as they marched through the streets of Tokyo, Japan.

And in the frigid ocean of Antarctica, penguins joined protesters in standing in solidarity with the marchers in Washington.

"I felt like I needed to do something to be part of the global movement," Women's March Antarctica organizer Linda Zunas told the Independent. But she acknowledged the event's limitations, telling the paper, "the actual marching will be short as we have to limit our footprint on land."
