So many people participated in Seattle's march that the crowd spanned three miles

The Women's March in Seattle, Washington, saw more than 120,000 participants. That's more than three miles of people, Seattle police claimed at one point during the day. 

Roughly a three mile route, the march began at Judkins Park and stretched all the way to the Seattle Center.

The ongoing theme for the march was 'Keep going forward.' Many donned pink 'pussyhats' and held signs proclaiming support for, not only women's rights, but social justice, equality and human rights. Some said they were voicing their opinions regarding Donald Trump's policies while others advocated for unity, and disavowed hate, sexism and racism.

For the most part, the march was largely peaceful and unified. Though protesters chanted against President Trump, many sang harmonious songs such as 'Lean on Me' and 'I'm gonna let it shine.' 

Across the Pacific Northwest, women's marches and rallies in cities from Seattle to eastern Washington, as well as Portland, Oregon, and Boise, Idaho, drew thousands of supporters.
