On Saturday, January 21st, just one day after the Presidential Inauguration of Donald Trump, hundreds of thousands of protesters took to our nation’s capital to speak out against inequality, civil rights violations, and the new administration that seems to pose a threat to these values. The movement saw more than 600 sister marches materialize across the world and an estimated overall attendance of nearly 4.8 million.

New York City was home to one of these sister marches, and the Women’s March on NYC, as it was named, saw about 400,000 participants of its own take to Midtown, reports the NY Daily News. Carrying signs that read “The future is female,” “Not my president,” and many more anecdotes of creative nature and sometimes colorful in language, the march traveled from Dag Hammarskjold Plaza at East 47th Street to Trump Tower, though police barricaded the actual block of the building.

Attendees included New York City’s First Lady Chirlane McCray, actress and New York native Rosie Perez, Yoko Ono, Whoopi Goldberg, and tons of other celebrities and local officials.

Below are a few images pulled from Instagram that captured the movement as it took place.
