Millions of people across the world gathered the day after President Trump’s Inauguration to stand up for equality — and some experts are saying it was the largest civil rights demonstration in U.S. history.

Washington, D.C. hosted the main event of the Women’s March, and the crowd — roughly 500,000 people — was so large that the initial route for the march was cancelled. Demonstrators peacefully flooded the streets, their cheers rolling down the Mall and bouncing off the city’s vacant office buildings.
