Overseas, protesters rallied or were planning to do so in France, Germany, Greece, Iraq, Nigeria and Ghana. However, Women's March organizers have not yet said if they will be honoring those two.

Ellen Bowen participated in her second march this year, also in Miami. "You know so everyone who was out in the airports rallying a year ago and marching in the streets, many of them are now sitting in state legislatures across the country".

Sixteen-year-old Caley Medina said she wanted to spread her activism beyond her high school campus, so she came to the march with her mom and brother.

"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", Donald Trump went on to add, while noting, "Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!"

Hundreds of protesters attended the National March for Impeachment was held in Terry Schrunk Plaza at 12:30 p.m. Organizers said the event was held to celebrate a protest that happened past year in downtown Portland on Inauguration Day. On his inauguration, angry Americans staged demonstrations around the country to express their disdain for Trump.

Protesters marched past vacant government offices as the shutdown continues through the weekend, and gathered at the National Mall. "I want a role model in office".

Many of Saturday's speakers highlighted the theme of sexual assault.

Those who took part in this year's events said they were galvanized by an avalanche of political and gender issues over the past year, as well as the #MeToo movement, which has been credited with countering widespread sexual abuse and misconduct.

In Rome, several hundred women gathered downtown and listened to Asia Argento. But it was her first in the United States, she said.

"We're going to stand up and we're not going to stop", she said. And not just sexual. Throughout the country, women and participants are marching with signs against the president, citing his disrespect and mistreatment of women, immigrants, and people of color.

A group of women wearing red cloaks and white hats like the characters in the book and TV show "The Handmaid's Tale" marched in formation, their heads bowed. "I was doing this in the '70s".

"Women bear most of the brunt of racism, discrimination and inequality and it's time to fight back and do it in solidarity", Greens NSW MP Mehreen Faruqi told AAP, who was in of the crowd. "As women we're often being told to stop and be silent, but we're here to keep it up".

This year, in round two, they returned in tens of thousands across Washington, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and other cities of the U.S. and the world in solidarity yet again, with the Women's March continuing the protest against racism, gender bias, and sexual assault.

The overarching message from the Pittsburgh Women's March: "Grab 'em by the midterms".

People hold their hands up at a Women's March in Los Angeles.
