Los Angeles draws 600K participants to Women's March

Thousands of protesters took to the streets for the NYC Women's March on Saturday

"Your vote is the most powerful tool at your individual disposal", actor Eva Longoria told the Los Angeles rally.

Hundreds of protesters who gathered in Palm Beach, Fla., carried anti-Trump signs as they marched past the president's Mar-a-Lago home while another group of women - wearing red cloaks and white hats like the characters in the book and TV show "The Handmaid's Tale" - marched in close formation.

Trump, at the White House, weighed in on the marches: "Beautiful weather all over our great country, a flawless day for all Women to March", he tweeted. I am obsessed with all the women in my life. But what's worse is the fact that Trump seems to think that the Women's March is a celebration of *his* achievements over the past year.

After the film was released in 1994, Portman said, she was excited she was to receive her first fan mail, only "to read a rape fantasy that a man had written me", according to CNN.

Hollywood actresses including Scarlet Johansson and Natalie Portman took part in a rally following the march.

Actor Adam Scott too was present, in Los Angeles.

Since last year's march, women have become more vocal and that is a positive sign, said Cathy Mutz, 63, a retired nurse from Chanahan, Illinois.

Coleman, a longtime weatherman, innovated the position when he started at Good Morning America, according to the Washington Post . In 1983, the American Meteorological Society presented Coleman with the Broadcast Meteorologist of the Year award.

"This year, organizers say they are reaching out to local partners after a year of grass-roots work to try to access a cross section of America, from minorities to the disenfranchised to women in low-income communities".

Addressing the crowd, Davis said: "I'm always introduced as an award-winning actor but my testimony is one of poverty, my testimony is one of being sexually assaulted and very much seeing a childhood that was robbed from me". "We will always support you, stand beside you, so you dont have to stand alone". "They need to talk to them about why they vote against their own interests, why they vote for people like Trump and Moore".

"So while we have this president celebrating his one-year anniversary, let's give him an "F" (grade) for his performance", House of Representatives Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said while flanked by fellow Democrats.

City officials had put the size of the crowd at between 200,000 and 300,000, and organizers said it was at the higher end and slightly larger than the 2017 rally. "It's disturbing", she said. Millions of people around the world marched during last year's rallies, and many on Saturday thought about all that has happened in the past year.

Singer Adele shared a photo on Instagram of herself, Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lawrence holding placards at a women's march as she issued a "power to the peaceful" rallying cry. It also comes months ahead of the midterm elections in the United States, in which progressive women hope to turn their activism into victories at the ballot box.

"The goal for many of these protesters today is to get women, particularly women of colour, involved in politics".

The Women's March organisation started in Washington in response to Donald Trump's presidential win.
