Though Friday's inauguration of Donald Trump felt to millions like a dark cloud over the country, the Women's Marches around the world on Saturday were a source of warm and welcome light. The main march in Washington D.C. was one of the biggest events to ever happen in the nation's capital, a reassuring reality given the recent attitudes towards women in this country. The seven most powerful moments from the Women's March in Washington will fill you with hope for the future.
The most incredible thing about all these moments is that they were just a tiny fraction of what happened all over the world on Saturday. Marches were held on every continent (yes, even Antarctica) and though it would be impossible to document every inspiring moment from each, you can rest a little easier knowing that they happened. Millions of women and men came together to express peace, love, and solidarity, and anywhere that happens, hope can be found. Trump has made these last few months seem really bleak, but there seems to be a dawn coming soon if these marches are any indication. If people continue working together to create inspiring and powerful moments like these, there's no telling how much they can accomplish.
