After it was announced that there would be a Women's march in Washington D.C. on Saturday, there has been plans to have them in cities all around the country. The point of these march's is to send a positive message to the local, domestic and international community that the administration's job is to report to the people who elected them.
The one here in Manhattan will start at One Dag Hammarskjold Plaza at 11am. The March begins at noon but there will be a rally beforehand.
According to the March RSVP's there is expected to be 50,000 people in attendance, but they say there will likely be over 100,000.
