WOMEN'S MARCH | Photo Gallery

Saturday's Women's March saw groundbreaking participation as people from all walks of life thronged the streets across the globe (mainly across America) to promote women's rights, immigration reforms, and health care reforms, besides representing their stand against Islamophobia, rape culture, and LGBT abuse as well as addressing racial inequities, workers' issues and environmental issues.

The rallies were largely seen as protests against Donald Trump, the recently- inaugurated President of the United States, and his various statements which have been deemed as anti- women and racial.

Here are some photos from some of the rallies that constituted the Women's March, featuring some well known faces who took time to actively participate in the marches.

Bollywood actress Radhika Apte was also a participant in Saturday's Women's March.

Reports have suggested that over a million people participated in the Women's March from all over the world. This, undoubtedly deserves much appreciation.

That being said, following the successful implementation of the march, and keeping in mind that the issues that the event addressed are ideas that can't be brought about in a transforming manner overnight, the question that arises is this: What next?

Well, we say, it's something that has to be determined by people who so energetically came out in support of this peaceful procession to support the ideas of righteousness and equality.
