Women's March

The largest single day protest in the history of the United States, along with being one of the largest and most peaceful protests in the world, the Women's March on January 21, 2017 brought out more than 5,000,000 people worldwide. The march was prompted by derogatory and threatening language used throughout the 2016 presidential campaign by Donald Trump, language that was misogynistic and attacked equality for people of color, immigrants, and the LGBTQ+ community. The following images were taken in Victoria, British Columbia where thousands gathered in Centennial Square Plaza and then later marched down Wharf Street.
