Millions of women around the world gathered the day after Donald Trump's inauguration to raise awareness for women's rights, civil rights and other social issues. 

More than 600 sister marches were planned across the country and overseas in conjunction with the Women's March on Washington. 

So many people attended the event in Chicago and Washington, D.C. that the march portions of the event had to be canceled.  Celebrity speakers continue to be features throughout the day.

Here's a video feed of the marches in Washington, D.C., New York and around the world. 

In New York City, where voters overwhelmingly voted for Hillary Clinton, marchers crowded Trump World Tower. They told reporters that Trump is no New Yorker. 

"New York is a community in itself, and people care about each other, and it's diverse," said Ashia Badi, 44, who brought her two daughters to march in Midtown Manhattan, the Associated Press reported. "He doesn't feel like he has those New York values I see."

Thousands wore pink for the march and carried signs saying "women's rights are human rights." 

A sea of pink in Boston.

Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren gave a stirring speech in front of thousands of women gathered in Boston on Saturday. 

“We can whimper. We can whine. Or we can fight back!” Warren called to the marchers, according to the Boston Globe. 

“That is why we come together today, hundreds of thousands of people in Boston and Washington, and across this country,” she added. “We are in marches to say we are fighting back! That’s who we are.”

And another one in Denver. 

Demonstrators gathered in Civic Center in Denver, Colorado for another Women's March. 

“Love not hate makes America great,” the marchers chanted, according to the Denver Post. 

Literally millions of women are marching. Here's more in Chicago. 

In Chicago, the crowds were so big that the actual march portion of the Women's March was cancelled, the Chicago Tribune reported. 

"Our march route is flooded. There is no safe way to march. We are just going to sing and dance and make our voices heard here," rally and march co-chairwoman Ann Scholhmer told the crowd.

In Los Angeles, thousands gathered in Pershing Square for another march. 


Celebrities like Natalie Portman, Kerry Washington, and Barbara Streisand were slated to speak at the march in L.A., according to the Los Angeles Times.
