March on Washington and beyond: How women are resisting Donald Trump [View all]




In this Thursday, Nov. 10, 2016, file photo, high school students protest in opposition of Donald Trump's presidential election victory in San Francisco. Thousands of high school students have taken to the streets in cities across the country since Donald Trump's election to protest his proposed crackdown on illegal immigration and his vulgar comments about women. It's an unusual show of political involvement on the part of young people who can't even vote yet. And experts say it can lead to increased activism when they are adults.

On Nov. 8, America elected a sexual predator to the presidency. Despite reeling from a collective gut punch, women who were opposed to President-elect Donald Trump channeled their sadness and rage into activism and organization.

The biggest and most well-known way women are objecting to Trump is the Women’s March on Washington, headed by three women of color and expected to draw hundreds of thousands. But women are leading the resistance in many other ways, from a teen magazine that called out Trump when the rest of the media still dealt in false equivalencies to a flood of Planned Parenthood donations made in Mike Pence’s name.
