On Jan. 21, an estimated 500,000 people gathered in Washington, D.C. for the Women’s March on Washington. More than 600 sister marches took place around the world, including Philadelphia, Chicago, Phoenix, Los Angeles, London and Paris. The Metro system was flooded with an estimated 470,000 riders, which is more than Friday’s inauguration. The march was very peaceful, and D.C. police confirmed that there weren’t any arrests made in connection with the march.

At the end of the day, marchers left their signs outside the White House.
