Women's March on Washington mobilizes millions (in pictures)

With an estimated 2.9 million in attendance—incidentally the same approximate margin by which Hillary Clinton won the popular vote—and crowd estimates steadily climbing, the Women's March on Washington and its sister marches across the United States made their collective mark as the largest single day demonstration in U.S. history. Herstory.

I had the distinct honour of taking part in the DC march with the Canadian delegation. Given the crowd density that was substantially greater than at Trump's inauguration one day prior (alternative facts notwithstanding), I never made it to the stage. I didn't get to actually see or hear a single speech.

But still. STILL. Here's a handful of the people, places and things that caught my attention at the Women's March on Washington.
