Signs reading: “Boys will be boys, then girls will become presidents” and “My p****y grabs back” filled the streets of Downtown Los Angeles during the Women’s March protest on Jan. 20.

According to the New York Times, this year there were around 600,000 Angelenos, who gathered in Perishing Square to participate in the annual 8 a.m. Women’s March.

The Women’s March LA Foundation helps organize the march and recruit volunteers. Women’s March LA’s  website stated that they “recognize that there is no true peace, freedom or inclusion without equity for all.”

Idina Menzel and Rachel Platten performed and  Kamala Harris, Laverne Cox and Rowan Blanchard gave speeches among many more.

This year the official theme for the March was “Power to the Polls.” According to the Women’s March website, “We will create a safe and peaceful space where the important issues of voter turnout, access, restrictions, and intimidation will be addressed and begin a plan of action leading up to November 2018 and beyond.”
