What a Day: March On

What a day.

I’m in Austin for the 3M Half Marathon (a story for another time), and I happened upon the Women’s March on Austin.

It was a blast, not because the event was fun per se, but because there was a solidarity and sense of community in the air that was refreshing to breathe in.

When I got to my hotel, I was blown away by the scale of the marches happening across the nation and across the world.

New York City:

Hundreds of thousands of women are marching in Washington today in a kind of counterinauguration. A range of speakers and performers cutting across generational lines rallied near the Capitol before marchers made their way toward the White House. Meanwhile, in #NewYork, Fifth Avenue became a river of pink hats. The photographer @nicole_craine took this picture near @grandcentralnyc. In downtown LA, even before the gathering crowd stretched itself out to march, it was more than a quarter mile deep on several streets. In Chicago, the size of a rally so quickly outgrew early estimates that the march that was to follow was canceled for safety. @fremson, a @nytimes staff photographer,is sharing scenes from the @womensmarch on Washington in our #InstagramStory. #NYCWomensMarch
