MAKING HISTORY

The Women’s March on Washington Sweeps the Streets of D.C. on Donald Trump’s First Day in Office

Photographed by Victoria Stevens

An estimated half a million demonstrators descended on Washington, D.C., during inauguration weekend — and it wasn’t to catch sight of the newly sworn-in president. The Women’s March on Washington flooded the Washington Mall Saturday, spilling out onto the streets of the capital. Some found a perch outside the Hirshhorn Museum, where speakers like Angela Davis, Gloria Steinem, Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards, and Janet Mock delivered brief, impassioned speeches followed by musical guests like Madonna, Alicia Keys, and Janelle Monáe; others, unable to hear the official rally, milled about the Washington and rallied themselves, brandishing signs and chanting cries that announced the diverse cross-section of race, age, gender identity, and sexual orientation that made up the crowd — just as it was intended. And — though its organizers have pointed out that the march is not against Trump, but for all the movements and people he threatens — he was on everyone’s minds as the march made its way to the steps of the White House. Get a glimpse of the movement on the ground, captured by photographer Victoria Stevens, here.
