Photographs by Jennifer Devereaux, Ashton Pittman, and Liam Scott.
The day after the inauguration of Donald J. Trump, men and women all across America took to the streets in defiance of the new administration. The Women’s March on Washington consisted of marches all across the United States and all around the world, from Washington D.C., to London, to Antarctica. In the United States, the Women’s March became the biggest single day protest of all-time, with between 3.3 and 4.6 million taking part. In D.C. alone, the protest crowd was three times bigger than the crowd at the inauguration. These photos were taken on January 21, 2017 at the Women’s March in New Orleans, where approximately 12,500 people took to the streets demonstrating on behalf of not only women, but on behalf of the disabled, of immigrants, of black lives, of Muslims, of LGBT people, and of all minorities that feel threatened by the proposed policies of the Trump presidency.
