The Women's March on Washington D.C. was huge.
Local photographer R. Arroyo was in Washington D.C. last Saturday, Jan. 21, when Women's March protesters filled the streets with signs, songs and pink "pussy ear" hats to voice their opposition to newly inaugurated President Donald Trump. The crowd (because crowd size is evidently everything) has been estimated at 470,000 people, according to the New York Times
. On the same day, Eureka held a "sister" Women's March
with some 5,000 attendees
according to the Eureka Police Department.
