January 20, 2018 marked the one year anniversary of the 2017 Women's March. In commemoration, the Women’s March organization staged another event. From all across America, women gathered in solidarity.

The march in New York had over 200,000 people in attendance. And it was not just the women of New York that took to the streets. Several other major cities replicated the march. Los Angeles, Washington, Philadelphia, Chicago, Seattle, and even Mar-a-Lago were involved.

Like last year, the focus of the march is on protesting against President Donald Trump, his policies on administration and healthcare, and also racial issues. In addition, a number of other themes have been included in this year’s march.

Top of the list of new themes is "Power to the Polls". The message is focused on increasing voter participation and encouraging women to participate in the political process. This includes advocacy of women’s rights and a renewed drive for women to run for higher political office.
