The Women's March 2018 took place on the anniversary of the inauguration of President Donald Trump, and many of Saturday's demonstrators expressed displeasure with him in their signs and apparel, which included the double-pointed, pink "pussy hats" made popular last year in reference to an off-color remark Trump made on tape years before winning the presidency.

New York's march featured a woman who won her local government seat in New Jersey after running against a man who publicly mocked the women's march a year ago.

The Women's March organisation started in Washington in response to Donald Trump's presidential win. In Italy, Italian actress Asia Argento, one of the first women to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault (second from left), joined the Rome Resists demonstration. And so, today, in this rally and the marches that we saw over the weekend, we see people who are feeling affected by these policies or proposed policies showing up.

The march also called for voter mobilisation ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. Millions of people around the world marched during last year's rallies, and many on Saturday talked about the news avalanche of politics and gender issues in the past year. This time around, marchers targeted swing states to register new voters.

An adviser for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio estimated that more than 120,000 people marched in the city on Saturday, gathering in Central Park West. Thousands more demonstrated in Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Washington and other USA cities. He told protesters, "We are with you all the way". I want what's best for people, I think we all do. "Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months". She finally bit the man "as hard as I could" and escaped, fleeing into a nearby fraternity house. They attended last year's march. The number of rally participants worldwide was lower than the millions who took to the streets a year ago, but the "resistance" against Trump still drew hundreds of thousands.

"This is one of the worst times in our history and that's why I honestly believe that women are going to be the ones that fix it", Cher said. She cited the difference women made in helping Democrat Doug Jones upset conservative Republican Roy Moore for a Senate seat in Alabama in December.

"I attended this year because 2017 really demonstrated that we need to speak up; raise our voices and opinions", the 45-year-old said, adding that the dawn of the #MeToo movement was a powerful and eye-opening moment for her.

"For us it's all about women's rights and we're seeing them be eroded with Trump in office", Beaty said. She said this year's action is set against the backdrop of the Trump presidency, which "turned out to be as scary as we thought it would be".

"Today, we march in the streets, then we march to vote, then we march into the halls of government - into state houses, school boards and the US Congress", said Rep. Dina Titus, who serves the 1st Congressional District of Nevada, via video statement. With a year of Trump's "America First" agenda, the United States' role in the world has dramatically changed. In Oakland and in Austin, Texas, groups of women marched in red robes and white bonnets like those worn by the women of Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale.
