Tens of Thousands Take to the Streets for the Third Women’s March

Tens of thousands of protesters across the globe are gathering for the third Women’s March today. Amid controversy surrounding the event’s organizers, turnout numbers are not expected to match the record-breaking stats from the 2017 march, when millions of marchers in Washington, DC, dwarfed President Donald Trump’s poorly attended inauguration.

Here are some stand-out photos and videos of the day so far:
