With the crucial midterm elections looming later this year, organizers of the Women's March sought to capitalize on their momentum by staging a second round of protests and rallies around the country.

The rallies look place in Washington, DC, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and approximately 250 other USA cities.

Some critics said this year's march lacked a focus and libertarian think tank and senior analyst at the Reason Foundation, Shikha Dalmia, said targeting an issue such as immigration would have had a greater impact.

Demonstrators were protesting the administration's migration and health care policies, among other and Trump's year of xenophobic and misogynistic rhetoric.

The weekend of demonstrations vowed to keep that momentum rolling with the theme "Power to the Polls" - a message created to drive national voter registration and maximise women's involvement in the mid-term elections this year, translating enthusiasm into concrete political action.

"We all must commit to fighting the systemic voter suppression laws that inhibit so many of our communities from voting", Linda Sarsour, a co-chair of the Women's March, said in a statement.

"Lowest female unemployment in 18 years".


"It's not just one thing". You told the world that time's up on violence. Right now, thousands are in Las Vegas for the central event, a "Power to the Polls" rally that is launching a voter registration tour.

"This year, it's just been a wonderful opportunity to come represent all women and a different voice to the women's movement", Smith said. Ranging from shocking to silly to sad to heartwarming and everything in between, we can't get enough of everybody's Women's March signs.
