The Women’s March on Saturday was, in fact, a global message. It began as Women’s March on Washington, then quickly expanded to other parts of the world. Jetset Times held our banners high in downtown Los Angeles. Meanwhile, global marchers fiercely supported women’s rights that might be annihilated under Donald Trump’s administration.
Cities including: Sydney, Berlin, London, Paris, Nairobi and Cape Town showed solidarity supporting Washington. Each city focused on a different concern, from climate change to equality. Here’s how the world turned pink on Saturday:
Australia was the first march to set the tone for the rest of the world. Anti-Trump protests highlighted: Girl Power vs. Trump Tower.
