Hundreds of thousands of protesters gathered in cities across the world on Jan. 21 to march in protest of Trump on his first full day in office.
The plans, hatched just after Trump's Election Day victory, began with the march on Washington and quickly ballooned into a massive protest that sparked sister demonstrations around the world.
