Women around the country gather for second march on Capitol Hill


Hundreds of thousands of activists from around the country arrived on Capitol Hill Saturday for the second Women’s March on Washington.

Note: This is a live feed of the march. There may be period disruptions as well as profane or graphic language used.

The event started last year after President Donald Trump was elected and was the largest women’s march in United States history.

Marchers meet at the Reflecting Pool, on the National Mall, at 11 a.m. for a rally and then start marching to the White House.

Some of this year's guests include Senator Tim Kaine, professional soccer player Joanna Lohman and Founding Director of Not Without Black Women Brittany T. Oliver.

The march in Los Angeles is expected to draw one of the largest crowds. According to CNN, some of the celebrities expected to attend include Scarlett Johansson, Laverne Cox, Sophia Bush, Adam Scott, Olivia Wilde, Alfre Woodard and Megan Mullally.

Organizers of a New York City rally and march for women's rights say tens of thousands of people will take to the streets on the one-year anniversary of President Donald Trump's inauguration.

Saturday's New York march will be one of an estimated 250 women's marches planned for Saturday and Sunday around the world.

The scheduled speakers include Ashley Bennett, a Democrat who was elected Atlantic County, New Jersey, freeholder last November. Bennett defeated Republican incumbent John Carman, who had mocked the 2017 women's march in Washington, D.C. with a Facebook post asking whether the women would be home in time to cook dinner.

Manhattan woman Peggy Taylor says she's "discouraged" over having to march yet again after Trump's "disastrous first year." She said she knows there's a "long slog ahead."
