The Women’s March in Boston attracted a tremendous number of demonstrators, estimated at 175,000 by Boston Police. The sister march to the national protest in D.C. was one of over 600 in across the country scheduled on Saturday, the day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump.
After marching through the Beacon Hill and Back Bay streets, the crowd streamed into Boston Common with speeches by U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, U.S. Senator Edward Markey, Mass. Attorney General Maura Healy and Boston Mayor Martin Walsh.
Pink “pussy hats” and homemade signs dominated the scene referencing agenda issues including women’s rights, immigration, healthcare, pro-choice, climate change and science.
