Hundreds gather for Women's March 2018 in Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Hundreds gathered outside the Milwaukee County Courthouse for Women's March 2018 on Saturday, January 20.
The march marks one year since millions of people rallied worldwide for female empowerment.
In addition to Milwaukee, thousands of people gathered at rallies held in Cleveland, Ohio, Richmond, Virginia, Philadelphia, New York, Austin, Texas, and more. Many marchers oppose President Trump's views on issues including abortion, immigration and LGBT rights.
President Donald Trump has tweeted that it's a "perfect day" for women to march to celebrate the "unprecedented economic success and wealth creation" that's happened during his first year in office.
Beautiful weather all over our great country, a perfect day for all Women to March. Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months. Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 20, 2018
