Marches were held across Europe and other parts of the world as thousands gathered in Washington DC.

The idea for the march took off after a number of women posted on social media in the hours after Donald Trump's election.

Hundreds of groups quickly joined the cause, pushing a wide range of causes, including abortion rights, gun control, climate change and immigrant rights.
