Seattle Women’s March 2.0 in Photos

Tens of thousands take to Seattle’s streets to support the #MeToo movement and marginalized communities.

On the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration, tens of thousands of Puget Sound residents marched through the streets of downtown Seattle in the second annual Women’s March on Saturday. Dressed in pink pussy hats and carrying handmade signs with phrases such as “equal rights, equal pay,” people of all ages marched from Cal Anderson Park in Capitol Hill to Seattle Center in Lower Queen Anne. This year, the #MeToo movement dominated the march, with a plethora of handheld signs condemning sexual assault, workplace harassment, and societal double standards.
