One day after Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, women and men marched in Washington D.C., and other major international cities to promote women's rights.
Faced with a turbulent political climate, the original organizers of the Women's March intended to highlight that "women's rights are human rights" during Saturday's demonstration, as the new U.S. government took to its first full day in office.
While no official figure of how many attended has been released yet, according to the organizers more than 5 million individuals participated in the Women's March worldwide.
CNBC takes a look at some of the placards and words spoken at the event.
"President Trump, I did not vote for you. That said, I respect that you are our president-elect and I want to be able to support you."
"But first I ask that you support me, support my sister, support my mother, support my best friend and all of our girlfriends, support the men and women here today that are anxiously awaiting to see how your next moves may drastically affect their lives."
