'America first': President Donald Trump vows to return power to the people

"Our dignity, our character, our rights have all been under attack", America Ferrera, who chairs the Artist's Table of artists committed to the mission of the Women's March on Washington - which includes music artists Neko Case, Cher, Grimes, Angelique Kidjo, Madonna, Matt and Kim, Katy Perry, KT Tunstall, TV on the Radio, Questlove and Zendaya - told the crowd.

Some signs in Washington took aim the president's alleged ties to Russian Federation and President Vladimir Putin.

Belinda Knight, 50, has lived in Washington for most of her adult life, but the Women's March on Saturday was the first protest she participated in.

People hold signs during a Women's March protest in front of the U.S. embassy in Mexico City, Saturday, Jan 21.

Trump's term as president starts off facing a much larger opposition.

Numerous women came wearing pink, pointy-eared "pussyhats" to mock the new president.

Despite it being summer in the Southern Hemisphere, some people were spotted in Wellington wearing knitted pink "pussyhats" - the cat theme referencing Trump's lewd remarks in a 2005 video.

Women from around the country are making their way to the nation's capital, with others preparing for events in cities around the globe.

Officials estimated a crowd in the hundreds of thousands. There were so many participants, in fact, organizers were unable to march the intended route to the White House as planned.

Children at times held political messages alongside their parents.

The episode airs later Tuesday (Jan. 10). "You cast the 14th lead in these movies and the Internet goes insane ", Affleck says. Although Affleck didn't get any answers write, he did name Swift's latest album, 1989.

"Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger".

Scores of protesters spilled into the streets after organizers canceled the city's march for safety reasons because of a larger-than-expected turnout. "In Tokyo, one of the issues they are campaigning for about is the right to education". We'll see whether it's fruitful.

"It just seemed like we needed to make a very firm stand of where we were", she said. And this is a day that will change us forever because we are together.

The day after the USA election, a plan was hatched to march on Washington.

In Prague, hundreds gathered in Wenceslas Square in freezing weather, waving portraits of Trump and Russia's Vladimir Putin and holding banners that read "This is just the beginning", "Kindness" and "Love".

The march has also drawn thousands of women from different backgrounds who simply hope to show their solidarity against Trump.

Mr Trump has taken his first steps, signing an executive order targeting his predecessor's health care scheme.

The division in Denver over Trump's election reflected the national sentiment.

"I'm hopeful that this [march] mobilises people because there's a lot of work to be done", said Ms Caputo.

"It's been a heartrending time to be both a woman and an immigrant in this country", she said. Say so long to disease and hello to space " We stand at the birth of a little millennium ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow".
