Peaceful protest

They came from all over -- California, Illinois, South Carolina, Texas -- but with a single purpose, to demonstrate their support for women's rights in the first D.C. protest of the new Donald Trump era.

But the rally offered a catharsis for the many who worry that a Trump administration will roll back important gains for women.
