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.

"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."
